Hi there, i've just started running ( well started back in May ) so still relatively new to stuff
I did my first 5K as the Race for Life in 29mins and then did my local village10K a few weeks ago in pouring rain ( but found it quite refreshing ) in 1hr 4mins
I'm doing the London 10K this sunday and i've als put in for the silverstone half marathon, going to put in for the bham half marathon in october and another 10k in lichfield in sept
I think i'm becoming addicted but i get such a buzz from doing it
I'm still a novice, do i go with jelly beans or jelly babies, what are these gels that people talk about that are meant to taste yukky, do they taste that bad?
i feel i've got loads of questions so hope no one minds me asking
I'm running on Sunday for the Down's syndrome association as my eldest daughter has Down's syndrome ( her name is Hannah, hence my user name ) She is my inspiration
Hi Hannahsmom. I'll hopefully see you at the bham and silverstone halves Like wordslinger says, you have to work out what's best for you. Some people like gels, others like jelly babies or beans, try them out and find out what's right for you
Good luck on Sunday
Welcome Hannahsmom. I have just started out and doing the 5K R4L in Rugby at end of July do you live in Northants? Maybe the Silverstone is something I could look at next year if I up my game by then
Good luck for Sunday
Sorry just read again and you live in Silverstone. I live in Long Buckby not far from you really.
I am going to enter the HM now, your right I will have a goal lol........how many months do I have hehe
Oh I see sorry I am confusing things. Well I have entered also and been accepted so I have 8months
So how did it go y/day?
oh yeah that is bad about the t-shirt. I would be really grumpy about that, 'cos i don't really care about medals, but t-shirts motivate me a lot! Hope the next race goes better hannahsmom.
Welcome everyone - i hear silverstone is great fun, but a bit too far for me. Hope all the training is going well
failed in the ballot for gnr this year ... friends got in, I didn't
tbh i got faster everytime I raced for the my first 4 halves - just the experience of running seemed to speed me up, even tho' i dis the same minimal training in between races. Not sure how that works, but it did for me
