Doing the Edinburgh half at the end of May, so should have plenty of time to get myself ready! Hit the treadmill in the gym the otherday to see what state i was in.. can last 30mins light jog if i throw a few rest walks in every few mins. Running on the road seems different story though!
Hi, I've never ran before, never really done much sport and in a moment of insanity i have signed up for a half marathon in a few months! I'm not overweight, using this purely for fitness (and to entertain my friends and family apparently!) Ordered some sports underwear, got some running shoes, now to hit the road. Pretty concerened about injuries - to not be able to do it over injury would crush me, what should i be looking for? I'm expecting to ache as my body isnt used to it but is there anywhere i shouldn't ache? What can i do to help prevent injuries? Are there any major training Do's and Dont's? I plan to take rest days and mix up with swimming or something of the sort as well.
