Anyone just starting out? (continuation of Newbies thread)
As we reached 1000 entries on the Newbies thread we though it would be a good idea to start a new one!!
If anyone is just starting out or needs motivation/advice/support come join us here!!
Right guys, will start off re-posting my goals (if your doing a cut/paste job like me the goals are around pages 40-43 of previous thread
1)To lose 2 stone
2) To complete my programme and run non-stop for 30mins
3) To complete the 10km in Oct in under 1hr30
4) To complete next years RFL by running the entire 5km and in under 35mins.
5) Get BMI below 25. It currently stands at 27
Oh dear, My Goals...
1) To run the 10k I have (now next weekend...) in under 55 mins ( i might revise this to 50 depending on how i feel later this week)
2) to finish the GSR which is on October 26
3) to loose some weight/get fit, and
4) to enjoy myself (Maybe this should have been first?!?)

Im 24, live in Brum and have this crazy idea that i acn be a proper runner some day my goals are as follows:
1) To lose the three stone holding me back
2) Run for half hour non stop outside (can do inside but cant run for 5 mins outside for some reason!!)
3) To at least finish the 10k at Sutton park on 7th Sep, set PB and get a medal (1st ever race really scared!! especially as i recently found out i cant run outside!!!!)
4) To feel like a real runner and to look forward to running
5) To run half marathon on Oct 26th, set PB and get a medal.
6) To be so confident i enter Paris half in March 09
Re- posting my goals from last forum
and of course to have fun!
and to be size 12 by Crimbo! (currently 16!)
I cud go on and on and on
well done mark!!!..... but stay away from the chocolate! lol
here are my goals
1 Run a 5K in under 35 mins (Bramham 12th Oct)
2 Run 10K in under 70 mins (Leeds Abbey dash, 23rd Nov, prev PB 1h 11m 31s)
3 Cycle to work at least once a week
4 Generally get fit/toned and run at least twice a week
5 Flat stomach (this is a loooong term goal which may or may not be achievable after 2 kids as it never was before!). More planks i think
Can't believe I missed the 1000 post. Well done TTN for starting it off again, and thanks for the advice on pages would never have remembered my goals otherwise Hope your not too tired when you go to the gym tonight. When is your first outdoors run.
My goals1. Continue running and wherever possible go three times a week2. Improve 5k time3. Improve on distance (5k longest done so far)4. RUN rfl next year5. Enter and complete a 10k
Glad We've revisited the goals as I've just realised that I'm working on 2 and 3 when I run, albeit slowly. I'm definitely going to do a 10k next year or possible November/December if I can find one in our area
Mark impressed with the 50 mins for a 10k I'd be chuffed if I could do a 10k in under 11/2 hours!
Sarah G welcome, so glad starting a new newbies thread encouraged you to join. Know what its like when you want to join in but everyone seems really pally pally. Your goals put mine to shame I've been running since April and have only done the R4L but home to rectify that. Have you ran before.
Meglet planks are brilliant for getting a flat stomach and very good stomach muscles.
Lisa glad you're feeling a bit better about the running, hope the run tonight goes well.
Right I'm off to look into possible races
Hi JM3 can only put u to shame if i can actually do the races lol i am so scared!! ive not done any races b4, so far ive only been running for about 5 months on treadmills in gym and a few disasterous outside runs but the weights coming off slowly and i need the races to keep me focused.
Has everybody else been running long?
Just wanted to say thanks for warm welcomes .
I see that mostly everyone has set themselves goals....my goal is pretty much as basic as you can get - just to be able to get past the 8-9 week plan I've set myself to follow, so that by the end of 2 months I'm able to run 3 miles (I think better in miles as opposed to kilometres!) in about 30 minutes, which right now, I must admit, seems waaaaay beyond me .
Good luck to everyone with their goals and may they all be achieved .
Sarah - I've only been 'running' for about 4 days now.
ah Mark i know, it really doesnt do it when you want choclate does it? I'm on Weight watchers and im trying to advoid the chocolate too, and an alpen light cereal bar with a drizzle of chocolate on it just aint the same!
Jackie, i dont know why is stress about the running, part of me being so impatient i guess!
Sarah - i've been running for about 5 weeks and i have a 10K run in about 3 weeks!! lol, its sounds so silyl when i say it out loud!
Hi all, just a quick one for the goals,
1. Run three times a week.
2. Lose 3 stone before I'm 40 (January)
3. Run my next 10k in less than 1:26:08
...and after the last couple of weeks
4. Not get injured doing meaningless activities thereby preventing me from achieving goals 1-3!
Need to update my goals1. Continue running and wherever possible go three times a week2. Improve 5k time3. Improve on distance (5k longest done so far)4. RUN rfl next year5. Complete Strathaven 10K on 23rd November
Now the serious training starts
Regretting it already the terrain is hilly with a total ascent of 60m and a total descent of 188 m. At least I'll be go down hill more than up
am fairly new to running, am injury prone! Am currently trying to manage heel and inner leg pain with a 10k on Sunday (boo!). Did my first 10k a month ago & it took me an hour and 2 minutes. Am training for a duatholon in 2 weeks at Loch Ness with a particularly horrible 22km cycle, the first 10km of which is uphill, I haven't even been out on a bike in over 2 years, am woefully unprepared!
Think of it this way once you're at the gym you won't be bored . Just take it easy on the treadmill, don't push yourself too hard and remember what cj said walk and run it. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DO IT
