Hi gang - still on a high after having run my first race in 25yrs,a 1:45 in the Stroud H/M last Sunday. My poser is "what next" and "when". Should I be training & resting for so many weeks? and aiming at perhaps a 10k or any other tips that will lead me to my next race, Cratchers

What do you want your running to do for you?

treat the 1/2M as a stepping stone towards a one-off attempt to run a marathon and then stop coz "been there got the T shirt" syndrome takes over

become an occasional social long distance runner entering 3/4 "big events" per year at 1/2M & full M distance.

decide you want the variety and camaraderie that comes from training and racing regularly with a group of like minded souls. ie racing with increased competitiveness every 2/3 weeks over distances from 5mile to 1/2M. and you want tha 1:45 to become 1:40 to become 1:37 etc etc. In which case join a local club.

Only you can decide. Whichever the Forum embraces all of the and more.

Good luck
