hiya all,

going to sign up for my first 10k tomorrow, 

a bit apprehensive as i only occasionaly run, but i do enjoy it,

so i thought why not get out a bit more often , do something i enjoy, get fitter, and generally feel better.

first training run done, around 2 miles, in 20 mins, gotta start somewhere, feel pretty good. Only problem i have to go and do a 12hour night shift, so I wonder how i'll be feeling later.

Any advise would be appreciated........Lets do this.

thanks for reading,

Try one of the training plans, how far off is the 10k run? Stick with the plans and you'll breeze it.

the run is the 9th september, so i've got a bit of time. I've read the "my first 10k" so i'm quite looking forward to it. It's the Cardiff 10k quite flat looking at the course map.

As a non-runner 10 weeks ago I loosely followed a couch to 5k plan but on the day of the 5k I actually did 10k instead, that was at 6 weeks. It was pushing it a little but I'm now in my 10th week and going for an 8-10 mile run tonight so yes with comittment you've plenty of time. I did my first 8 miler last week and loved it, didn't feel too bad after and felt I could of run further. It did take me an extra day to recover lol.

Well  done, great inspiration. i've been out 4 times since sunday, just doing around 2 miles each time, got some time off this week, so i'll try and up the distance slightly, really enjoying it, cant wait to get back out there.
