Morning Crun, welcome to the forum. You'll find out we're a friendly lot, although many of us are raving mad... Any questions you have, just ask - although you may find the answers in previous threads.
Well done on the 1.5 miles, a solution I use for stitch is: don't eat immediately before you go running. If you do get stitch, breathe in, through your mouth, slowly, then exhale, through your mouth again, quickly/suddenly if you know what I mean. Also try running with your hands above your head for a minute or so. Although you will look like a berk, and cars will honk at you as they pass, if it gets rid of the stitch, who cares lol?!
Well done Crun and welcome to the forum! Be prepared .... it's compulsive!
Hello from Peterborough too
I started running early this year and I'm aiming to complete a 10K in 2009, celebrating my 50th birthday too.
Keep going.... I struggle sometimes, but there are also the good days too
yip, welcome to the forum.
We were all beginners at one point, only thing is you're a beginner again.
but congrats on the distance, just keep it up
