Anyone just starting out? (continuation of Newbies thread)
Looking to get back into running - used to be able to run 45 mins. Felt great. Wanna feel that great again.
Havent thought about goals - just want to be able to run regularly for 25-30mins at a steady (albiet slow) pace. Once I achieve that I may think about entering a fun run an possibly rasing some money.
I've started a thread in the beginners forum - would appreciate any thoughts on plans and what is working out for people.
Talk to me pleeeease - I know no runners and would appreciate the support.
Hey Ryan...ive just replied to your thread! Hope its of some help!
You will find plenty of support on here, i have, these guys are great!
Not sure if a cyber kick is enough of a threat to get me out there, BUT knowing you might ask me tomorrow probably will. Right now tho, it will be a huge achievement if i do it.....................
Hey Ryan, heres a link you might find interesting
I can ask you tomorrow then Kellyd! Why dont you go out for a walk with your running gear on and see how it goes then theres no pressure on you to run if you dont want to and if you feel like a bit of running then go for but if not then its still a walk and your still getting out for a bit of exercise! Is your partner at home, she always gives you lots of encouragement by the sounds of it! You could take her along to cheer you along?!
I was thinking that if i dont go out i will be embarassed to come on here and say that i didnt even try!
well exactly, that is the embarressing part, just being lazy.
Yes, Claire is at home, she hurt her knee a bit yesterday, but we have made a chart of different activities that we have to do and we are down for a walk today, SO, i'm sure she'll want to go.
Being lazy is so easy though, im naturally a lazy person and could quite happily do nothing...if only i didnt get fat that way!
A charts a good way to go, ive got one too, love highlighting off the days ive done! Hope her knee is better soon and you get out for your walk tonight!
I could put up every photo taken of me in the last 4 years as a shock tactic!!!
Thanks for the advice guys.
Just about to print the plan and get out tonight.
When you guys chat do you setup a new thread or just post in this one.
Nic - tried your link but it didnt work as I'm not currently a subcriber to the magazine (YET). For shame!!
Thanks for you suggestion - hadnt thought about that but definately will.
Anybody know any 5K fun runs in and around Bath area?
oh yeah forgot about the subscriber only stuff! Its basically just an article about the benefits of run walk, some people even improved marathon times using it!
We just post in this one to keep everything together, we had to start a new one as we got to 1000 posts and didnt want to scare people off with a huge amout of threads!
If you go to the events tab above you can do a search for events in your area, dont think its subscriber only!
Hi Ryan, I'm not sure how close this is to you ...
It was the only one that I could find near Bath (please forgive my lack of geographical nouse, but is Bath in somerset?)
