Hi I have just jumped on here after reading page 1. I have just ran 3 miles on a treadmill as I start my prep for my first HM in March . Started running last July and did my last REAL run last November (Derwentwater 10m) and have been very lazy since then (initially due to bad knee but then just couldn't get into it again!). I put my details into smart coach to get me going again and give me a plan to work to but it appears to have slow times - don't get me wrong I'm not fast at all (took 30 mins for 3 miles) but I find it difficult to go slower , or faster! Should I try to reduce my pace or just use the distances as a guide and my own times. Any advice appreciated.
Hi - hope I'm not intruding. This is my first time in a forum and I am also doing my fist race - Great Yorkshire Run 10k next Sun - very excited and very nervous! Been running on and off since April but in the last 6 weeks I have really got the bug and run 6 / 7 miles twice a week - struggle to give any more time to it! My ankles ache straight after the runs (which I do at night) but are ok the following morning - any ideas to stop them hurting?
