Realistic Targets for beginner?

Posted: 21/05/2013 at 17:42

I think your goals are achievable, everyone is different age weight and so on. in 2010 at the age of 30 not having done any running since i left school i went from not being able to run more than 15 min in April, by the end of the year had done 43min 10k, 1.37 hm  then later in the year a 19.59 5k at the time there was no way i could have trained for a marathon as well.

good luck don't push yourself to hard if you don't achieve your goals this year there is always next, as others have said work on 5k 10k build up your mileage slowly and go for a hm later in the year

 I was at conkers today. only 2nd time i have done a park run but have enjoyed them both.

Ready to race?

you will be fine when i did my first half marathon my longest run was 17.5km and that was about 5-6 weeks before the event as i picked up a injury on that run, did not want to push any further than that and risk not being able to do the race, i got to the last mile and felt great finishing the last mile at near 5k pace and when i crossed the line felt like i could keep on going, you will be amazed how the crowd and other runners help you push yourself further than you think, just enjoy the day start off slow and see how you feel

heart rate

had a long break from running (about a 15 months ) and not long got my garmin back from the menders, i am now 33 been training again for a few months

today went out 12 miles at 8:30 pace avg heart rate of 162

last week went out for 4 mile at 7:20 pace and avg heart rate was 170

so only 8 bpm difference i thought that there would be more than that?

also is there much point running over 12-13 mile on my long runs as i am training for a 10k in about 9 weeks

slight heel pain in the mornings

cowgirl sounds like you had/got this worse than i do right now, at the moment i only have pain in the morning and first couple of minuets of a run its like i have just landed on my heels hard -- more of a bruising feeling.

guess the good news is its not got any worse bad news is that its not got better

neil I have a bottle in the freezer will give that a go

 will book in to see a podiatrist to get it checked over see what they say.

Thanks for the advise, I was not to worried about it but after reading posts here with people that have had the same sort of pain and having to stop running for ages just didnt want to take any sort of risk of that happening, I am enjoying my running too much to have to take weeks or months off

slight heel pain in the mornings

a few weeks ago i did a 11mile run on a treadmill due to the fact it was so icy outside ( what a boring run )  after the run i had some pain in my heels, eased off that day but every day since i get a slight pain in my heels in the morning, I have been still running 40 miles a week since hoping that the pain will go away, while running i don't experience any pain at all, reading up sounds like it could be plantar fasciitis but i am not a doctor

i am due to go do a 13 mile run today

question is should i continue to run? the pain is not getting any worse and is not bothering me that much, my worry is that if it gets worse i could be off running for along time
