yes, I am new to this job, but I have 15 years experience of "having a job". don't send me an email then come over to my desk, ask me to open it on-screen and read it out loud to me. if I ask you a question about the 3rd item in said email, don't answer my question by re-reading aloud the entire email from the beginning. twice. don't ask me to chase something up for you because you're too busy to do it yourself, then do it yourself anyway. don't tell me what time I should take my lunch break. don't suggest to me that I should make notes. if I felt I needed to write stuff down in order to remember it, I would have already written it down, but I think I can remember "change the blue to green".
trust me, although I have to sit next to you, we'll get on a whole lot better if the ratio of you completely ignoring me/you treating me like an idiot changes from 90/10 to 100/0.
I started running in 2011, had gait analysis and was recommended Asics Gel Nimbus 12s and I loved them - never had so much as a single blister from them. I only replaced them a couple of months ago (should have been much, much earlier as they were completely broken) and ended up with Nike Air Pegasus+ 29 and they're just as fab as the Asics were. Interestingly, the guy I go to (Neil Featherby - fastest marathon runner in Norfolk - at Sportlink in Norwich) said that the soles of running shoes become really hard and solid over time so even if I'd found some 12s somewhere they probably would have been no good.
Hello, hope there's room for another here? I started running a couple of years ago using the C25k programme, which helped to kick start my weight loss, but after running a half marathon a knee problem forced me to stop running last year. I'm now back up to 25mins running non-stop and, thanks to Rosemary Conley, at the weight I was before I had to stop running. But ideally I'd like to lose 1.5 - 2 stone. The calorie counting was going really well and I've lost 10 pounds but I got a bit complacent and started buying crisps and chocolate so I need to get back into the habit of low-fat and portion control as this is the only thing that appears to work for me.
Off to make a big vat of low-fat tomato and bean soup as it's Monday tomorrow, that seems like a good time to start again! Looking forward to reading about more pounds being lost by everyone
Hello, another C25ker here! I popped into this thread a few months ago hoping that I would be able to start C25k again. I started running in May 2011 and went from couch to half marathon but had knee issues that forced me to stop running last year. After an x-ray, ultrasound and MRI scan all came back normal I decided what the hell and that I was going to start running again as I missed it so much. So I started c25k again recently and am now at week 7. I'm also at a happy place now that I'm running again! My knee problems haven't gone away, but they've improved to the point where I'm only getting discomfort rather than pain so as long as they don't get any worse I'm going to keep on running and hope to get back to running a couple of 5k during the week and 10k+ at the weekend. Fingers crossed!!!
I'm meeting up with a couple of friends from work later for a run round our local broad in preparation for the Race for Life 5k next weekend.
