Every journey begins with the first step and all that!
Rachel- if you get a bit fitter, your archery will improve too- certainly I've found that running fitness has let me get away with much less trainig for the type of shooting I do.
Yes, it is a lot easier to fit running into a busy life than to get to a club night- it just needs a bit of thinknig ahead- can you ferry the kids somewhere, then run while they're doing what ever it is they do, and then you're ready to take them home, or can they go out on bikes alongside you while you run?
Hey everyone, id like to join this thread too, could do with some motivation! Im an on/off runner, seem to do really well for afew months every year then stop again so im hoping joining a thread and chatting to people will help keep me going this time. My aim for this year is just to stick at it, i know i enjoy it and it makes me feel good so why do i stop doing it?!
Did my first run on sat, 2 miles not sure of the time, pretty slow! the wind was so strong, afew times i was actually running and not moving bet it gave people in their cars a laugh!
think im going to enter into a 10k and use a training guide, i find it easier to stick to when i have a plan.
Hope everyones trainings going good
Only got out once last week.
Did however take the dog out for an hour walk three times.
We've just been up to the park and done 11 times walk 1 run 1 again.
Will walk again tomorrow and then shuffle on Wednesday.
Hope its going well for u all
I started in November, can I join in too? Got about four stone to lose, wanting to get into a 10k in the spring.
For a 5k, do you have a local Parkrun? There's one in Newcastle, and I'm thinking of going along in a couple of weeks time.
Well done everyone, seems like you're all making a brilliant start to the year. I know I can't wait to say YIPEE that's run 1 of 2012 done, but until I'm a bit better I'm going to have to stick to nice slow walks. Did just over 5k today so not as bad as it could be, will walk again tomorrow, prob about 4miles so see how that goes, but can't 'brisk' walk it yet either, but hey, at least its something!
Keep up the good work everyone, looking forward to reading more success stories soon, got to have something to give me drive while I'm off work
Maamalade - Exhibition Park, every Saturday - their site is here
Reckon I'll be there in two or three weeks time...
Angry bees - thanks for that, hopefully one day when I'm back home, and running again, will meet you there for a run Mum may take a little longer to convince, will find out next weekend when I see her just how serious she is.
Roy - Brilliant time on your run, quickest I ever got on 3 miles was 33 mins! Just don't overdo it, keep the motivation there and continue to enjoy it!
After a long spell of illness and slowly recovering I walked a total of 5.5km yesterday, but throughout the day and total took about hour and half ish, but given I'm still taking it easy and building strength aren't too unhappy. Today though I have up'd the pace and dug my stepper out, just couldn't face going outside Thought going to be tougher than a slow walk, but will try and do 10mins and ended up doing 20!!! Feeling really good for it too Going to head back to the cold outdoors tomorrow and do another walk but see if I can stretch the distance a bit, but take it nice and steady to see how I go.
Hope you are all feeling positive still and enjoying the progress and achievments that you have made.
