Every journey begins with the first step and all that!
as a beginner its nice to see a thread like this where everyone is really encouraging each other, found that sometimes people are a bit rude on some threads and it started putting me off posting anything. congratulations everyone for heading out and starting a journey for the new year......i only started yesterday and i'm aching lol!! today is a scheduled rest day then it back out on it tomorrow and thursday...hurts thinking about it.
Nice to see people making a move forward. Well done all.
Dog and I did a 50 min walk last night and then 11x run 1 walk 1 this am at 0530!!!!
Wow, slowjoe, that's impressive.What you doing up so early???? At that time of day there is only one thing to say for that time and it's Dedication!
K-Anne - sounds like you're having a tough start, do stick with it though as it will get easier with time. Don't hurt thinking about it, enjoy! You're making progress and that's what counts. Well done for getting out there.
I'm hurting today, think overdid the sit ups yesterday,oops! Planning on going for a walk later, hope the weather picks up a bit though as it is that horrible fine drizzle here at the moment.
Oh well off to finish my brew
I work nights and even on days off tend to sleep during the day LOL
So if i finish work at 5 im home by ten past and go straight out. I find if I stop for a cup of tea I cant get going again.
That makes sense slowjoe, can't imagine working nights, imagine it would be hard going. Bet you get lots of peace when you're out doing your runs though which would be great
Can't wait till I get back to it, I feel like I'm chomping at the bit to get running again, but one step at a time and all that.
Its difficult to know when to get back to it Maam.
Better to wait a day too long than start back too early.
Sounds like great encouragement K, let us know how it goes.
As for my walk, I did 5.06km in 54.04! Still got another k to do as need to nip out again, but feeling really good for it. Only problem was part of the walk was my old running route and I just wanted to run Oh well! Going to save that for next week. Feeling like I could do it now, but as you say slowj, better to wait a little longer than do too much too soon.
In the words of K - Happy running everyone
Oh - has anyone heard from James????? Seemed really encouraged but not seen anything else from him
Fantastic day K, you did brilliant, bet you're feeling really good for it!
Know what you mean about getting up early. When I go back to work next week I'll be out the house at 6am everyday and not get home till just gone 7pm! So workouts will be before I go if I can drag myself out of bed, or once I get in providing I don't sit down first!!!
Surprisingly I haven't done anything since my walk, other than chill out Just trying to decide what I'm going to do tomorrow???
Sounds like you may have found your passion in life now, stuck on the streets forever - should we start calling you Forest Gump???
I'm looking at a gps watch thingy to track what I'm doing, fed up of taking my phone out with me. May have also just bought a cross trainer - good for alternative when weather crap etc
thanks Maam, i'd b flat out let alone chillin out after 5k lol.
great your getting the running bug Wilson well done you, got any goals in mind anyone?
can i be really dim and ask what a nike+ and a gps do? feel like i'm missing out on something lol
