What weather will put you off training?

About an hour before I was due to out for a 5 mile run, there was snow, hail and torrential downpours, so I guess that put me off slightly!!

I was out running with the club last night and I was frozen too!!. Someone at the club suggested a few slices of Warbuton fruit loaf. I've never heard of it, but is it worth a try of a few slices before a run?. I quite like fruit, but can't imagine it in a loaf of bread..lol..

I would love to do track work.  

Newbie ahoy!

Congratulations on doing a half marathon to start with. It does take time to improve on speed. I'm still working on mine as well. I do the 5k in the same time as you. Don't feel too disheartned about where you came on the race, because at the end of the day like someone told me. 'Your out there doing it in the first place!!- Most people are sitting on their backsides, so congratulate yourself on making the effort that you do. Enjoy the running. I've concentrated on times etc and at the end of the day it doesn't always do you any favours. Enjoy running for the time being. Your times will improve eventually. Do I think your too slow for a race?..defintely not..It's not always about the times, it's also about taking part and having fun and remembering why you started running in the first place. Don't push yourself under too much pressure, because it can be damaging mentally and pyshically.

Have fun, enjoy your run and you can slowly work towards the half marathon in march.

Why does it take so long before I can get into my stride?

I seem to suffer from the same, so I know where your coming from. It takes me ages to get into my stride as well. It takes me a while also, so your not alone!!
