i 'd love a new PB
i appreciate that you can't pop in at work......so your lunchtime question is
what do you hope to gain from the forums and what do you think you can give to the forums
Hi Seren, Well...
Gain; I have already gained more confidence from the forum. My weakness is being over cautious - I do tend to hold back, but everyone has been so encouraging and supportive.I really appreciate all the advice I've picked up so far, and whether I get through or not I hope to continue doing this.
Give; I'd like to think by sharing my day to day training, highs and lows, that other 'newer', 'slower', 'older' runners will realise that a marathon goal is achievable to anyone prepared to put in the training. Whatever happens I plan to support the final 5 in any way I can through the forum.
Right I'm off for a quick walk around the forum and try catch up..
I hope you have enjoyed your rest day.
A youth club - good luck!!!
well I'm back in one piece DS2...hand ball tonight! Great kids!
Good on you - I still have fond memories of attending youth club myself.
What ages are they?
11 - 16 yr olds. They shriek a lot still !
Hi Rose, I remember you! It was such a good day last friday..I met so many lovely people. Good to hear from you,please do stay in touch on this thread. I'm glad you liked the granola bars, they are my staple running fuel.
Thanx for your kind post Jen. I've been feeling the same about you and sad we're in the same group. I know that your family & friends must be VERY proud of you and all that you've achieved in such a short space of time. As Running Rose said You DO represent a lot of "newer" runners and "slower" (although NOT FOR LONG with your many PB's to come!) and I agree that I think you would have a lot of followers. Enjoy your day with friends after the youth club last night
Had a lovely lovely run this morn, v cold n a bit slip under foot, so we just took it steady, (not slow as coach Sam told us at bootcamp. I liked that.. I'm not a slow runner.. I'm a steady runner )
Hi Jenf. I'm a new and VERY 'steady' runner, ( love that positive definition!! ). I'd be interested to know what you think you could gain from the experience if you got through, in order to help you reach your new pb. Also, any tips on how to build up speed?
Evening Jen! Hope you've had a good day! Your run along the coast sounded amazing!
Welcome to the forum Delyth, If I get through the BEST experience will be running in Paris with the support of a great team! What I will gain along the way will be a whole wealth of experience from the RW/Asics coaches and pros, and being able to share that with lots of other like minded runners on a thread will be great. Hopefully by the end of the 16weeks they will be lots of us running faster and stronger!
Building speed....hmmm, thats what I need to find out and work on myself...so watch this space...I have a feeling it will involve a lot of hard work. I read once that to be a faster runner you have to run faster.
