Darling. I don't know how to tell you, but there are a load of rats nesting in the shed.
Yesterday, without telling your, I bought a rat trap and set it on the top shelf in there. Today... the trap is gone. I can't find it.
My imagination runs from the most likely scenario... (that the rat was not nearly killed by the trap ... and it is/was running around with a proverbial millstone round its neck).. to the rather less likely - that the rats disarmed the trap and have got it primed in my bed, or under the toilet seat or something.
Steve (or anyone)... what do you mean by "in line with recent thinking, I'm not convinced of the benefits"
I'm thinking of making the same shoe transition (from Brooks Ravenna) and have been trying to move my foot-strike forwards. My impression is that my speed improves (although I have a niggly feeling that I might actually be putting more effort in... so it might not be sustainable)
What is this 'recent thinking' and do you have any links please? Cheers.
Hi Laura. If you've done a half before, you KNOW that you've got it inside you. Loads of people go through what you're going through, and get back into running again. I did it myself, though perhaps from not quite such a low ebb.
Google Couch to 5K... it's a great way to get back into it. If you can find a beginner group of runners, that can be good. Maybe try emailing your nearest "Park Run" (www.parkrun.org) or running clubs to see if they know of any beginner groups.
Good luck. In creating this thread, you've already taken the first step, so make sure you follow it up!
