i started on the treadmills a few years ago but got bored after i went outside a few times. as previous advice take it careful. Are you looking to go road running or into the sticks and trial run. i went into trial running and found it kept everything interesting and really had my focus on the surroundings.

its not an issue to mix both but you may find that you will get bored of the treadmill the more you take to going outside.

Hi Vic,

good weekend? what stretches have you tried for you calves ? have you tried just like placing your legs has if you walking so one in front of the other and leaning forward bending the front leg and keeping the back foot firmly on the ground you should feel the calve pulling abit hold for around 6 seconds, it may help

Hi All,

Victoria as MM and Sinbad said just break into it slowly by giving yourself little targets even if its run to one lampost then walk to the next etc etc build yourself up slowly and then running 2 lamposts and walking one, you may find all this will ease up on your coughing fits as your body adjusts to this kind of exercise.

Thanks again for another good run this year it was nice that the course had changed so added a different variety.but really enjoyed it again finished one place back from what i did last year but when you got that runner from Cheltenham who wins everything and Jonny M from Tewks you got to expect that, but i was just under one minute faster than last year so happy with that.

Thanks again
