Cheers guys

good advice on the 10 miler. I am building up gradually and doing 10k on Sunday long runs. I am going to download a training schedule and get busy!

I agree with alot of the advice here. dont push yourself too much or running will become a chore and not a hobby. By all means set goals but dont try and "kill dead things" as my old man used to say.

There is alot more to running than mileage. The key is to relax, enjoy the environment and clear your mind for a while.

Personally I think your schedule is a little tight. Give yourself a bit more time and you will enjoy it more. If you dont you will end up tired, sore and unhappy and that increases the chances of you giving it up.

Well done on starting and best of luck

I am a marathon virgin and scared. This one sounds really good though and I am going to make a decision over the weekend.

If I go for it can we form some sort of motivational team!!

still smoking

I gave up smoking last June quite easily but recently in had been preying on my mind. A couple of days ago I was on the train and the poor passenger a few rows down had had a
tracheotomy. I have now idea if it was smoking related but it confirmed to me that stopping smoking was perhaps a wise choice.

Shoot me down if you like, when I smoked I used to do that to non smokers too!

Do yourself a favour, stop, its bloody stupid

1/2 stone that just won't shift!

try weights/ strength training program

31,just given up smoking,overweight,any ideas

Gave up smoking last June and, through running have lost 3 inches of my waist.


How I hear you ask:

1. fags: Never touch cigarettes again. stopping smoking is easy, dont fall for the addict/ victim syndrome. Its all a mind game. fags are too smelly, expensive and dangerous. Its easy to stop. Just stop.

2. Exercise: Get running/ jogging/ walking. Follow any of the schedules on this site. print them off, put them on the fridge and cross off each session. try and get a training partner. weather is good for this

3. Diet: Booze= 1 per week (dont hold back either) proper diet (lean meat, fish, veg, rice, pasta -not atkins, starvation and any other fads) and 1 treat meal (curry, meat feast pizza, chinese, fish & chips) per week. also 2 litres of water min per day

4. Motivation: Buy a cheap pair of trousers of the size you would like to be. try them on every month. no scales allowed

In 12 weeks you will be in the best shape of your life. I wont wish u good luck as its got nothing to do with luck, its effort.
