Wrap Up & Run 10K - Tatton Park

Posted: 24/02/2014 at 21:41

I did the Yule Yomp as my first race, I have just compared the two routes and from memory it probably is equally as undulating. The route your doing looks a little more on road which should help after the weather we have had.

Running Route Recording

I use WalkJogRun for doing the same as your planning. I tend to plan a route on there. Run it and time it with my GShock and then come back edit it as required and then import it into FetchEveryone with times and splits if I have done them.

All free too!

First Post - First day on C25K

Posted: 29/09/2013 at 20:26

Well done D Mont I think that first session is the hardest. I started the C25K 13 weeks ago yesterday and am now covering 11k+ without a walk break. I did 4 sessions a week rather than the three in the programme as that worked for me but take it at the pace it feels right for you at.

The satisfaction of running that first 5K was pretty awesome.

Question on weight / Height / i doing too much?

Hi Nate

I am a newbie like you, I started running at the end of June so 3 Months, before that other than walking to the station etc I did no real exersise. I used to weigh nearly 18 Stone and I am 5'9, I lost 3 stone through diet a few years ago and kept most of it off. When I started running I was 15 Stone. I am now just over 14 and am now running up to 11K 4 times a week and aim to do 12K on Monday.

BMI wise we are pretty much the same and I am 3 years younger than you so there is not much in it between us, so I would not worry about being too big, just do what you feel is right. Any aches or pains and back off, visit the doctors is required, but keep going.

I have a 10K booked for the beginning of December and am hoping to hit the hour mark.

My Last Run

Starting my build up to my first 10K in just under 11 weeks, building up my LSR, so covered 11Km this morning. Lovely conditions when I left the house at 0540, plenty of stars in view and a lovely sunrise.

Legs a touch achy after a lot of driving this weekend but they feel much better after a good run.

Best practices for water

Posted: 23/09/2013 at 09:36

I am in the glass before I run camp too. Only small and more because i run first thing than I need it for my run.

I am running for over an hour now and have no problems, although a nice cold glass of water would be ace right at the end of my run pre cool down, but I am not carrying it for 10K or more for that. The river always looks tempting!

New Beginnings

Spooky, your weight and height are pretty much exactly the same as mine, I am doing my first 10K in 12 weeks, I ran my first training 10k on Monday and did one this morning. Not pushing too hard I hit 1.03 I am hoping to do 55 mins but will be happy with an hour as its off road. I train before work so have to keep some in the tank to work and walk to the station.

How is the training going? Whats the longest run you have done?

Thanks guys

I do not really have best kit so no worried on that. I usually do 40% on trails during my runs so I will probably just work a little more into the routes. It was plenty muddy enough this morning.

I will try and do the Abney Hall 5K a couple of times before as I think that has some off road sections and will give me a little "race" experience.

I covered 10K in 1:02:31 this morning which I think could have been faster had I been able to see at all for the first 1k, I spent most of that sections trying not to fall in the river. Going to go and find a training plan now.

First 10K in 12 Weeks (Tatton Yule Yomp)

I took the plunge last night and entered my first event, the Tatton Yule Yomp, it looks like a fun event and I think the off road nature of much of it should suit me. Its probably going to be cold and muddy but thats half the fun.

Anyway, I have my first straight 10K run of my Bridge to 10K plan on Monday, I have covered slightly more than 10K in the last 3 runs which where 30 mins run, 3 mins walk 30 mins run. I plan to find a good plan to follow for the next 11 ish weeks to help me get though the event sub 1 hr.

Is anyone else entering it?

Yesterday I did the Bridge 2 10K Week 3 Run 1 which was 18 min Run with a 1 Min Walk x 3. Completed fine and covered 9.42 KM in 56 mins, so on track for the 60min 10K.
