I don't know if you had any luck setting up your own club but if so let me know as I'd like to find people to run with around Wandsworth Common, ideally, otherwise Clapham Common. I've just signed up for a 10km and really need the motivation now it's started to head towards the dark, winter nights! I'm also not so keen on running alone in the dark so if you want a running pal, let me know.
Nope....def not attempting 10 miles from scratch!!! That would be far too painful :0) I managed 10 miles at the beginning of December as had started my training in November....but then had the usual pre xmas celebrations, over indulging in food and drink etc and now my fitness levels have def dropped!
I managed (a very slow) 7 miles outside last Saturday and am trying to build up my speed and general breathing ability (!!!) during the week and trying to do a long run at the weekend.
At the moment, i'm not signed up for any races....i'm running around Battersea park as I know each lap is 1.75 miles so a pretty good measure of how i'm doing. Though last week was my 1st outdoor run so am slowly adapting to life away from the treadmill!! It's tough I can tell you :0)
Hi there...I'm new to this forum (and running in general) but thought i'd pop in and see what's what etc. I have just started training for the FLM and am a complete beginner to running....the only race I have run previously is a Nike 10km in 2002!!
Am hoping to run 10 miles on Sat.....but we shall see!!
I don't suppose anyone is aware of anyone also training for a sub 5 time living around the Putney area who fancies a training partner from time to time do you? Or where to look to find one?
Sorry if this shouldn't be posted here too....there were too many forums and I wasn't sure where best to post etc.
