INSPIRE, a beginners 'virtual' runners club. Read Page1 please
Just popping in...I have a few weeks of work andam spending quality time with middle daughter. She has made some improvement but still quite poorly really. My OH has taken the other two children to stay with his sister for the week. They will be off to watch the olympic rowing tomorrow. I was gutted that my middle daughter was not well enough to travel, it would have been amazing..but we will watch on the TV!
I have managed to keep running although not as aften as I would like. Not much chance this week as I am on my own looking after my daughter but may sneak in a short run at some point!
Good to see Glowfeet back here...I am trying to lose weight as well.
hope your daughter get's better soon MWW

A difficult week for me, daughter not so good this week, plus my 82 year old father had a fall gave us a bit of a scare!
Having done my first good LSR for ages last week, I have a problem with my ankle and have not been able to run since
hope your dad's ok MWW and your daughter get's better soon. hope you get your ankle sorted and can get back to running
ran 6 miles this morning quite warm out there
Thanks Q - my Dad is okay, cuts and bruises mostly, but need to get him an appointment with his consultant to see if there is anything that be done to ease the dizziness that I think caused him to fall.
Nice swim for me this morning!
I've been persuaded by all the lovely stories and encouragment at the start of this long thread to 'come out' and admit to the world that I am trying to learn to run! Previously I lost 4 stone and was very fit and would run up to 5k but never felt I could do more. I'm now 3 stone overweight and very unfit. I'm fed up with trying to diet so I've decided to focus on running and eating sensibly. I want to be able to run for an hour, as this has always seemed to me like an amazing thing to be able to do, so I'm following a training plan to run 10k.
My sticking point is this - I'm really competitive (with myself mainly) so training for a race would really work for me but although I've looked a few up, I'm nervous about signing up for them. As I'm in week 3 of a 10 week training programme I have no idea how slow I'll be at 10k when I get there and I don't want to sign up for a race that turns out to be of a really high standard and I finish the race 20 minutes after everyone else (I don't mind being last just without embaressing myself!). I'm in south yorkshire and have been looking at doing the Cusworth 10k and/or the Pickering and Moors 10k.
Can anyone give me any advice about either of these races or about signing up for your first race in general?!
Been busy again at work hence lack of posting. Went club running last night did 5.7 miles and it was really nice less than 3 weeks to my HM now
Mad - hope eveything is ok you certainly have your share of problems dont you you must be wonder women to cope with it all
Q - sounds like your running is going well as always well done
Dee - hope its going ok, keep taking it easy and you will get there
Where is everyone these days btw not heard from TL or Mykey for ages hope they are ok
