Surrey Half Marathon

Not quite sure how you define 'jogging' versus 'running properly' but no and no.

Plenty of time for a nice steady build up to the distance.  Go for it.

Inflation

On a road ride I usally take canisters and a pump.  I'm too feeble to achieve the necessary pressure with a pump but find it useful to 'shape' the tube (or find the hole if out of spare tubes) before putting tyre back on.

Injury holding me back

Posted: 12/10/2014 at 22:51

As I suggested above, you need to forget what you used to do and try to embrace being slow - for the moment. Easier said than done, I know. 

Would you find it less frustrating if you actually set out with a run/walk stategy for each run?

Injury holding me back

Posted: 12/10/2014 at 19:31

When I tried to start running regularly after a long break I kept picking up injuries, mostly in the lower leg, cos I was trying to run like I used to rather than how my body was ready for. Once I accepted that I could not run as well as I used to and went right back to basics - ie really slow run/walk - I stopped getting injured and made progress.  Several months on I still havene't got the speed back but endurance is building nicely and  injuries (touch wood) seem to be a thing of the past.

So possibly, a combination of the extra weight and pushing yourself too hard too soon?

Waterproof Jacket...

Ronhill also do a jacket which folds into its own back pocket and has a waist strap but I don't remember which one it is. Might be one from their 'trail' range.
