Ok, thank you guys. I'm just worried about doing something silly like falling off my bike. I've been told its a low key event and everyone is really friendly so I'm hoping I have nothing to worry about.
Hi Emma. I live in Peterborough and know of a few coming up.
Market Deeping 10K is this Sunday (19th)
Hunts 10K is the 16th June
Abbey 10K is the 30th June.
I actually ran my first 10K on Sunday - Clapham Common as I was visiting my Uncle. I finished in 1 hour 13 minutes (so fairly slow) and I didn't come last. So honestly don't worry about it, just go out and enjoy yourself
Hi. I have Crohns and although I haven't run a half marathon yet (training for one in Oct), I find that by keeping myself hydrated and keeping my diet in check. Low fibre, nothing spicey and nothing too heavy the days I run I haven't had any problems (touch wood). I also found keeping a diary of what I was eating and what it was doing to my body helped as I could plan what to eat the days when I exercise.
Tell your friend to keep with it though. I was told by my doctor that I have made my condition alot better since starting up running!
