I'm up for it. I've definitely got the 5k running bug now since the St Davids 5k this morning. It was only my second 5k and I did it in 29mins 30secs (although I hear it wasn't quite 5k but never mind!)

 So by May I reckon I'll be down so 25 minutes! That's my target anyway!

Well done Jen

You gonna shave 4 mins off your 5k time in 2 months???  You realise there is a whacking great big hill in this one??  Just thought I mention...

There is a 5K in April too

And a 5-mile in Barry at the end of April

Not that I have been looking.....

Jennifer there is thread called sub-25 and beyond - 5k training for mortals which you might want to look at.

Also the thread on the free weekly 5k time trials in Bute Park on Saturday mornings.

To drop from running a 10m/m to an 8m/m in 8 weeks is not impossible but an extremely ambitious target and I wish you well.

Not really that silly Nam

I was awake at 6 on Sunday - and I hadnt even decided to do it then

Heaven help me if I ever do another one
(cos of course I have no intentions, obviously, that is why I have been listing others and my new tutor thinks I wm some kind of half wit because I have been walking around beaming all day still )

you've got the bug now
03/03/2008 at 23:08

I cant do one of anything

Can you put up with me again, tho?

I'm in for this one.  Did it last year in the pouring rain! The 3K hill is almost on my doorstep!!!
09/03/2008 at 21:19

This hill is starting to worry me now!
Maybe I should rethink things

Anyone else doing the Cardiff Sport Relief next week, or the 6th April 5K in Bute Park?

09/03/2008 at 21:48
I'm doing the Sport Relief Mile x 3 next week! Don't worry about the hill, you just have too take it slow and steady. I'm thinking of starting some training runs round the course. Was thinking some of us from the forum could get together and do it once a week or so?

I'd be up for that   Just finding things had to fit in now with scheduled swims etc... 
09/03/2008 at 22:05

Sounds good - although you will all leave me behind

Pulled up the SPort Relief website this afternoon, then couldn't decide if 1mile or 3miles, then wimped out.......

Which start time are you KJ

Nam

Barking... if you don't mind I keep you company as we're a pretty compatible pace and neither of us mind doing the very occasional 30sec walk break if needed.    Let me know if you fancy a plod one night... some gentle 11m/m chugging...

You coming to plod tomorrow or won't you get back in time from placement?
