Good luck.  RW seem to have completely abandoned it after doing it for one year.


I think so many use Strava they just gave up, but, that's just my opinion

Have you looked at the Elite Field so far? Those with times in it are between 2:04 and 2:14 for their PB

I guess that gives you some sort of idea of the sort of times you need to look at.

Maybe just 2:15 will do Or if you have a sparkling personality and your parents own a hundred oil wells, you might get in that way.

Running to fast and to soon is what it sounds like

you could not do it so should accept you need to look at things like couch to 5km programs they are methodical and slowly build up.

Just google c25k and you will find hundreds of them.  The NHS has a great site just go there and start with their plan and you won't go wrong.

You burn yourself out after 1km and the rest was a mess... Go way slower treat it like a comic slow motion cartoon.  You might get a bit further then.

Re the vibrams not really.  I still do it every now and then once a month or so just go out for a couple of miles, either in the vibrams or just bare feet.

It's fun because it makes you completely concentrate on your posture / running style to ensure you land on your forefoot.

But i'm not convinced about the needing to land on the forefoot... argument i guess now would be a good time whilst i'm running limited mileage to try to change to entirely forefoot running as i'm not doing that much. But we shall see.


Oh.  I had an Xray yesterday on the knee and the physio said a consultant will look at it but frankly it looks fine, she said depending on the consultants mood they will either say nothing on it just the beginning of possible arthritis which she was saying was basically meaningless it looked fine for 45 year old knee   so all down to the soft tissue and next she wants a one off cortisone shot to see if that helps along with concentrating more on biking and squats and a few weeks of only 10 miles a week or so running.
