Minty, it WAS daunting running through town, luckily I passed them pretty quick and have never gone round a corner so quick in my life !!! Lol. My wobbly bits were certainly giving it some hahah
Ragz welcome aboard, and we done on your weight loss, it feels great having the 'me time' as you def need it, makes most of your cares vanish for that short time, keep it up and you'll soon be running further than you imagined, I'm sticking at the 3miles for now then will slowly up it afterwards
Ha I know what you mean, I have a lovely lake to run round it's just under 1/2 mile long and up and down but plenty of flat, I got bored of that and went round the streets, the other week I ran through town, THAT in itself was an experience as it was a Friday niht and everyone was out drinking, here's me running by, must of looked a right sight !! . I also have a canal nearby so I have took to running down that, sometimes I wish I could just run and not have to do the same trek back, if I carried on I'd have to get my husband to fetch me !
The nearest sweatshop to me is Nottingham, I'm in Loughborough, so it's a bit far, I need to get in a club or sometng as I'm bored Have you been out today, I did 1/2 mile then stopped walked for 2mins then went again, must say my heart wasn't in it, not sure why Maybe the cross trainer tomorrow
Hi cheetah, well done on your progress, I just want to say the 'Main' reason I skipped doing some of my 8wk training was because the race for life I'm doing is in less than 4wk away so I'd never complete it hence me cheating The one thing do wish is I haa a running buddy, it gets boring going alone
I started running a few months ago,had my baby last july so want to shift my baby weight, keep fit & enter races (hopefully! ) I started a 8wk training programme,got to wk 4 and had to run for 25mins, when i mapped my route i found i had done 2miles so me being impatient i had not stuck to the plan and just done a 5k a few days ago then yesterday i did 3.7miles ! Not sure if i should of done this but the fact that i have managed it without stopping has spurred me on no end !
I have entered the race for life so training for that,once i get better at my running i will enter some 5k's.
How are you ladies doing ?
I have to agree with you though norfolklass about staying to the plan, i ran once,months ago, went too far and gave myself shin splints which knocked me right back !
I'd just like to add i did my first 5k few days ago, (3.2miles to be exact) in 39mins 55secs) nothing to shout about time wise, but yesterday i did 3.7miles in 44mins 10sec, is that good, my knees were knocking at the end must admit but felt great that after mapping my route i had gone that far, not sure if ive pushed it too far, but i feel fine
