Hi, I've been lurking for a while now and really enjoy reading everyone's comments, so thought it would be a good idea to say hello!
I started this running malarkey a couple of months ago because I wanted to improve my fitness after packing in the fags, and was inspired after going to watch some friends of mine do a 10k race. So far I've been rather enjoying it, but still can't get that far and am so slow!! I can do 5k now on a good day, but it takes me 42mins!! On one hand I'm really pleased because a couple of months ago I could barely run for a minute! But it is barely faster than a good walking pace!! Have entered the adidas women's 5k challenge in Liverpool which is next Sunday, and although I am reasonably confident i'll get round the course I'd like to do it quicker. Maybe I'll save that for my second race though
Anyhoo my goals are simply to be able to go further and quicker! And if I could shift a few pounds in the process i'd be a happy girl
