Training not going to well for me as I have been doing rather too much cycling to work and back and my legs are tired. Have posted on the training thread for some advice but if anyones got any would be really grateful. Hope eveyone else getting on ok.
Shame you will not be there mick and phil, was looking forward to seeing you both you are so inspriring.
I am running a half marathon in 4 weeks. I have been struggling with my training as i have started to cycle to work about 3 days a week and also play net ball once or twice and my legs ache too mcuh to run too far. Supposed to be running 4/5 times a week but can not manage it wonder if i cut it down to 3 times i would feel better. Can anyone suggest a programme on 3 sessions a week?
I started running as a way of getting fitter and releiving stress and can honestly say that it really works. I have suffered from depression and although its hard to get motivated at times I really think that getting fitter makes you feel better about yourself and that had the knock on effect of improving your moods and helping you to cope. I find that following a programme which tells you when to run, for how long etc is really beneficial and there are loads on here to help you whatever your level. Running is great because its amazing how quickly you can improve. Just take it slowly, enjoy it and most of all be grateful that you are able to run at all. I ahve never done a race for life but know lots of people who have and I think its good advice to go for one of those and have a goal to aim for.
