I'm in the GPS business so this is an area I have some knowledge of, unlike running!
I've been testing a number of apps to fnd the best solution to allow family and friends to track me on Sunday and the simplest by far, for the iPhone is Where Am I, available on iPhone and Android.
I've no affiliation, I run a GPS news website, I'm not a manufacturer. But this app has options to send a tracking token to friends via SMS, E-mail, Twitter or Facebook and works well. The tracking map can be viewed on your smartphone or via the desktop and once you're done you can revoke the location tracking, and better yet, it's free!
LOL, was in TXMaxx Friday and came away with a long sleeved base layer and a New Balance t-shirt. Need some more pairs of shorts which I've ordered and an outer shell which Aldi should solve. Might get a few more tops. Hate running with too much on but haven't run through a winter before so we shall see!
Thanks Jen, I'd already spotted the Aldi thing and will be there bright and early on Thursday! Bought some running tops from Lidl last year, they're the wicking type with mesh panels and they've been great. Hopefully the Aldi stuff will be as good,
My apologies, put it down to a bad day in the office.
'C25k' is the 'Couch to 5k' program designed to get non-runners, beginners, novices, whetever you prefer to call them, running. It's an 8-week run/walk program that buiklds up to 30 mins of running.
I haven't run for a long time because I fractured my spine in an accident and my right leg was left short by an inch and twisted. But I went through an op where my femur was re-fractured and an Ilizarov frame two years ago. Over the course of 12mths the frame is used to 'stretch' the two broken bones and new bone is grown. So my leg is now correct length again.
With that done I could contemplate running once again.
Right now I'm just concentrating on building up to the stage where I can run 3miles comfotably. I can do that now, but it's hard going! I hope to be able to start the training plan proper in a couple of weeks.
