Love to hear your comments!
You sound to be doing very well. Why don't you do a 10k run in the summer? It will give you something to aim towards, then you might like to either do another and see if you get a better time, or perhaps try a longer race? It depends what you enjoy really, but you are obviously getting a lot fitter.
It sound's like you're making good progress - Keep it up.
Many people train for a 10k, and not all of them want to be competitive on race day. This means there are plenty of training schedules out there and plenty of fellow newbies to run with on race day. Having said that, if you could run a 10K at 8-minute-mile pace, by my rough calculation you would finish in about 50 minutes, which is far from slow.
Feel free to ignore me, as I have never run 10K in my life!
Thanks for your reply!
I think deep down I would love to do a 10k run. Maybe it would be a good option... I think the only reason I have held off is because it has only been 9 weeks since I couldn't even run 3 mins! Maybe it would give me a confidence boost!
Any other suggestions or is Redpanda on the button!
That makes a change for me! I am a complete novice, I only started running 3 months ago, but completed the Manchester 10 last Sunday, I did it in 58 mins, but was hampered by the walkers and very slow runners, which was annoying! It gives you a nice boost though when you realise you are not that slow, and you overtake so many people!
There are loads of 10k on in the summer, have a look and get your name down. As the previous poster said, 50 mins is a brilliant time.
Thank you all for your input! Sorry it has been so long since I have sent a reply - my computer went AWOL over the bank holiday! I have taken in your comments and have started looking for a race to enter this summer. I also went out and got the Samsung MiCoach (which I must say is brilliant!). I have already started running 10k each Sunday and will be looking to improve my time ready for the race. I have also started looking for a running club to make sure I don't loose motivation!
Thanks again - I hope some of you get this post.
All the best,
