Hi everybody. Firstly thank you all for your replies. I took all the information you gave me onboard and it was very helpful. I am pleased to say that I completed the half in 2 hrs 5 mins which i was very happy with. i have booked a full marathon in manchester for april 2012. so i may be asking for more advice in march next year. lol. thanks again. regards james
Wow, I'm sorry to hear about the problems you have had. But thanks for your reply as i now certainly won't be buying one of them. Booktrunk you are indeed very cynical. And maybe no need to post as you offered me no help on this subject. regards james
Hi everybody. This year I started running to lose a bit of weight and improve fitness. At the beginning of the year I could only run about 3k but soon built up to 10k runs.
I decided it would be a good idea to enter the Bristol Half Marathon which is now a month away. I have ran 10 miles before on the road and have done 13 miles on a treadmill (albeit a slow 2 hrs 19 mins).
I have had a bad month due to other commitments and was looking for some advice on what sort of length runs I should do in the next four weeks building up to the event.
Should I attempt a 13 mile run outside? Or do lots of shorter runs? Any advice appreciated. Cheers
Hi there everyone. I'm interested in buying a treadmill. There are a couple models I'm looking at but was hoping to get some advice from people that might own them. Firstly i have seen a Dream Fitness D1000 for ??499. This can be found at this website http://www.dreamtreadmill.co.uk/D1000%20Treadmill.html Now spec wise this looks like the best treadmill you can buy. But I'm skeptical as they seem to be a small company in leicester and I can't find any reviews about them or the product. Anybody have any information??? Own one of these??? The other treadmill i was looking at is a reebok z8. This is available in Argos for ??499 with a two year warranty and it seems to have good reviews. Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
