Hi all,

Been reading the site for a while and thought it was time I joined in!
So there we go!

Running to help lose some weight (hopefully!) and get fitter (fingers crossed!)

:d

Hi Steve,

Yeah been building it up slowly since around May this year. When I first started I could hardly run one minute without being so out of breath that I had to stop and walk. Since then I've given up the cigs (decided that was not helping!!!) and have kept training. Been doing some speed work recently- jog a bit run untill i cant run any further repeat etc... which seems to be working... can now easily run 1km without really being out of breath at all. Going to give 5km a go tomorrow and see how I get on! :)
Probably averaging around 5-7 km a week at the moment so not huge but better than nothing i guess!

Doing a 10km in October! (hopefully!!!)

Ik to 5k is quite a leap or do you mean you are able to run further than 1k but then you start to puff?!

Don't worry about the speed...just try to get round the 5k without stopping.
Good luck.

Don't get squished by those pesky lorries.......:lol:
