Just to introduce myself...
I thought I'd introduce myself, do this the pro'er way! I'm an "all the gear, no idea" type but have plenty of ambition, I'm just very self-concious about ways to go about getting into running. In the dark, no one sees how unfit I am etc.
I've been wanting to get into running forever - At my work inspiration is never far out of an earshot. I have been going to the gym and a variety of classes for about 6 months now, and although I feel better for it I still don't really feel like I've made a big leap in my health! I feel like running would fill that gap!
I've been running increasingly since joining the gym, but I'm really plagued by stitches - constantly. But mind over matter they say! My goal is generally to be running every other day to start with without any excuse for why I can't at least get out there (Like the weather, grooaaann...) So I thought joining would be some fantastic info. Plus my work means I know a lot about running shoes so I am happy to throw my 2cents about.
Thank you for reading and I look forward to using the forum!
Thanks very much DelB!! It's great you're getting back in to it, and best of luck
I downloaded the "Get Running" one a long time ago, and I think it's brill, as all similar apps are, but I keep fading in and out of it (I won't lie, due to excuses!) I think it's great you've set yourself a goal, and a very realistic one at that, good luck!
Thanks Cheeze439, that's some fab advice.
I read how the breathing/landing pattern commonly affects it, I tried this once (but not since...) but when I got a thin stitch going from side to side, I was a bit baffled which side to land on I'm definitely going to give it more testing though.
Do you find it is related to fitness? It's good to know yours is subsided. I don't suffer as badly when I have done yoga beforehand - Must be muscles stretched and relaxed I suppose!
