Hi Caroline, what aspect of running do you find difficult? If its coughing and sore chest, go to your Dr for an inhaler (there is such a thing as athletes induced asthma), if its your legs that is shaky try some jelly babies before a run, if your legs are sore, explore it, you may have the wrong shoes or need a more thorough warm up. If its a sore neck and head, then relax your shoulders and take in water; the two most common headaches in running are dehdryation and tension. The other thing you may want to research is running drills. I'd like to invite the more experienced runners to comment as well as they will know a lot more than I and there are a lot more issues to running. The one thing I would say is percivere, we are built to run efficiently, it may take a few sessions.

We have a free gym at work and showers in the toilets. I can imagine the frustrations of people who don't have any facilities. I agree that if a company operates a cycle to work scheme then they should provide showering for their employees,  in fact I would extend this to any work place who has a sports club of any nature.

Hi, I was just wondering what thoughts you had on the following shoes from a technical perspective ...

Nike Flyknit

Adidas Boost

Puma Mobium

I understand, every runner's needs are different but which of the above 3 do you guys think enhances running and which, if any, do you think are fads.

I have to say I think Nike free soles are excellent as are the multi layered soles that many shoes have on them, I also like the fact that some shoes come in different widths.

Thanks for reading and I hope you all remain injury free.

I had a problem with my Nike GPS watch where my computer was not recognizing the watch as a USB device which rendered it useless when it came to upload info to the NIke+ site.

The watch was out of warranty so I called up NIke for advice and they asked me to send my old one to them and they would send a new one. I thought that was really good of them.

The watch can plug directly into a USB port but it now ships with a cable. Nike have obviously tried to address this problem and it looks like when a few slip through the net, they do the decent thing and replace the watch.

I understand Garmin are the industry leaders and I haven't tried one. I imagine they will be excellent. All I can say is the Nike GPS watch works for me, looks great and is very easy to use.

Am I the slowest EVER?

Hi Laine, hang in there. You are out there doing it and enjoying it and thats all that matters. Stick at it and try to stay injury free. You don't actually realise it but its all falling into place for you as you run. One day you will look back and put your times down to being a beginner ... we have all been there. Set yourself an anachievable goal, you will be doing 40 minutes before you know it, then 35, then 30.

Hi David, are you still organising the Polaroid 10k series for 2013? If so, do you know when the dates will be confirmed or when entry opens.

My wife and I live in Clynder and new to running so we are very keen to train for and partake in the local events and to support local charities.

Many Thanks and best wishes.
