i played football for years but gave it up when i got to about 30, i now play cricket twice a week so i need to be cricket fit rather than super fit. although i would like to run half marathons where possible.
i was thinking that at 42 and 16 stone, 10k three times a week would keep me in good healthy shape as i get older. [need to sort out diet plan as well ]
i have only run on a treadmill, so i am only used to running a 5k indoors. i will endevor to run outdoors early january and see how i get on but i am a bit worried about the boredom of running alone, which could effect my stamina. does that make sense?
although snow melted in croydon a few days ago, not yet been back out due to bad neck.
i was two stone overweight beforw xmas now closer to three. Hope to do 5k on sunday morming in the gym and back into the swing of things as the new year starts... lets hope
still have a few big weekends coming up, so will keep up the running but start the diet mid january. i'm aiming to be 3 stone lighter and running regular 10k's by this time next year, is that aiming to high?
i am 42 and about two stone over weight, i have just started running and did my first 5k last week and got the numbness and pins and needles in my right foot at about 2 miles. was a bit worried at first due to it being my first big run [ for me ].
i am wearing addidas runnig trainers[ cushioned] but i wear them quite loose, so i am not sure if this going against the grain but i don't to stretch as much as i proberly should , so not sure if this is going down the tight calf path.
as a new runner i would be interested in your feedback.
would also be grateful for any advise how to pace myself at my age in becoming a regular 10k runner in the future, would like run to run this aprox three times a week.
