Cos he entered a half ironman (70.3 Staffs) a couple of weeks back, so a 10km should be a piece of pi$$

But clearly wasn't/isn't!

Why did you start with a 10k? are you able to 'run' 5k?

Well done Diggers and Razor! Maybe some better prep with the alarm clock next time Mrs D 

i have have ran twice in the last 3 days, trying to get back into it all and running every other day. First run of 4 miles had an average of 11:00 minute miles, 2nd was 9:59 so an improvement. Will be out again this evening as it's sunny again! Im starting to enjoy running again!

Go Mrs D! The run will continue to come down quickly. You'll be running 6 minute miles soon

Where abouts are you Sam? Sky rides are great, I used to be a leader and we had all kinds of cyclists turn up, they are really friendly and will make sure everyone gets home safely

This years is still open so I'm guessing not very quickly. But I believe this may only be the 2nd year (?) so it may sell out quicker next year

There are rules here??? 

Ali - I appreciate you have a coach so feel free to ignore me. It appears you have no problems with the actual distance But with speed. So if I were you I would drop the distance right back and try and get the speed up. So go out for an hour and try and smash 16 miles, then try 2 hours and so on. I would still do a long ride to keep the endurance up but concentrate on shorter rides to get speedier!

I have run! It's rather hot out and it was a very slow run, but have to start from somewhere. I'm hoping to do Cardiff half in October so need to get back running after spending most of my time riding. Running is a lot harder!

Agree with Pete, the only real solution to this is to get out and ride the roads and become used to the traffic. Pick a quiet day, ususally early Sunday morning is a good to try.

A good tip is to make sure you ride accertively! Don't hug the gutter as this will increase the liklihood of cars squeezing past to overtake and potentially causing accidents.
