I'm 32,female,5 foot 5 and weight just under 14 stone. I started C25K last autumn but had to give up due to a hernia related issue. I've just restarted and am about to start week 4 of the C25K programme. I'd like to participate in a half marathon at the beginning of October and was wondering if this was doable?
I'm running every other day and on my off days using the exercise bike for 30 minutes.
I'm 31, female, 5 foot 5 and 196lb. I'm also on the C25K around week 4. I would like to be able to run either a 10k or half marathon at the end of May depending on how well I get on with the C25K and beyond. I'm enjoying running but my calfs and ankles hate it. I don't get out of breath but suffer aches and pains while running.
I'm looking for some advice please. I've started on the C25K programme and am currently on Week 4. I'm female, 31, 5 foot 5 and weigh 13 stone 9. Prior to running, I was walking regularly at least once a week up to 8 miles so am not too unfit. Chest wise I find the running ok but my calfs and ankles aren't enjoying it too much.
Two things, I was wondering if it would be possible to run a half marathon next year. I've been very inspired by reading Booktrunk's thread. The Royal Windsor Trail Run Half Marathon really appeals to me but I'm reluctant to sign up as I've a lot of weight to lose and fitness to gain. How much progress do I need to make before I'm safe to put my entry in?
Secondly, what sort of exercise should I be doing on my rest days. I'd like something that will flatten my stomach! I'm not able to go to the gym. We have a rowing machine and the EA active games for the Wii. I don't mind paying out for some equipment for home if it will be beneficial. Having had 3 children, I really want to get fit and slimmer again.
