Hello everybody.

My name is Shaun and I am 23 years old.

I took up running in November because I decided to enter myself into my local half marathon. 

I am currently into week 8 of 12 of my training and I have been really enjoying the new challenge. 

I look forward to taking part in discussions with you all and learning more about my new favorite hobby!

Thanks

Well done on getting started and good luck in your half! Which are you doing? How are you finding the training?

Hey Matt

It is the Inverness Half Marathon on the 9th of March

Training has been going very well thanks. A few niggles but avoided anything serious by taking good advice and doing a bit of swatting up too.

Good luck I'm doing my first half marathon the same day but in Nottinghamshire. Wot sort of distances are you running out of interest?

Hey Nick, thanks for the reply and good luck with yours too, how has your training been going?

I have been running between 20-35 miles per week.

I ran half marathon distance for the first time last night in 1:35:19. I am very happy with that as when I began I thought if I dig deep I could manage a sub 1:35. It seems now that I have been training sub 1:35 is obtainable without overdoing it.
