Hi Claire ???? I haven't really got anything to add to these guys fantastic advice ???? trust me you'll soon start to feel so good about the progress you are seeing you'll forget all about being self conscious! If I see someone out running I just think "good on them" no matter their size..its better than being sat on the sofa ????
I'm just starting out running again after a break of a couple of years after having a baby, I've got 2.5 stone to lose and I'm on week 1 of a couch to 10km programme, I'm using myfitnesspal app to track calories. If you want we can motivate each other ???? x
20mins on the treadmill isn't easy is it Em! I dont know how folk can prefer it to running outside, outside is sooo much easier! Im not even going to pretend i know where on earth the intercostal muscles are but i hope they are feeling better soon
Haha LL, no danger of me becoming a munro bagger, i hate hillwalking (sorry!!) but i do want to do a munro...just the 1! we are doing a west cost of scotland and sky tour so it will be somewhere over that side.....not the inaccessable pinnacle though haha! Well done on your cycle, it sounds fast to me too! Thanks for the advice with Ben Lomond, i will have a look to see where it is on the map, hopefully its on the right side of the country
Hope your run goes well today Claire, did i read that right on your fb that someone did spinning with jeans on ?!
Well rest day for my yesterday and im extending it to today, with the clocks going forward last night i never slept worrying about sleeping in as i didnt trust that my phone close would change automatically...its not too bad sleeping in for work out here but we have an emergency exercise on a sunday morning so was panicking about being woken up with the muster alarm blaring haha! Dreadmill again for me tomorrow though...then home for a nice run outside in the fresh air!
Mark - good luck at the docs, hope he is able to fix it easily
LL - talk away about walking...i might be attempting my first munro in the summer so i might be needing your advice
BJB - keep coming on here and you will soon get some motivate...or a kick up the arse, whatevers required haha
Claire - you never know, maybe you friend is a bit nervous about not being able to keep up with you/run as far? Oh no, hope your knee is ok for Sunday, will this be your 14mile run?
Well i went down the gym but had to stop running after 10mins, my calves were really tight and it was hurting too much, i think it didnt help that i had put a bit too much pressure on myself to reach 20mins again so i wasnt mentally there either or i probably wouldve ran through it, im going to google stretching exercises for my calves that i can do tonight and tomorrow then get on the treadmill again on sunday and see how long i can go for, im really disappointed but i know i can do it and will do it again
