Hi Folks,

Just popped in to say hello.

Another noob running wise I'm afraid, always wanted to get fit again (as if I ever was) and decided that just turning 40 :eek: was probably the best time to start doing it.

Therefore I started running about 8 weeks ago following one of the walk-run-walk plans, and can now miraculously plod/jog for 5 miles without stopping in circa 45 mins :d :d

Aim is to complete the FLM 2009 without expiring, and then to see where my new found fitness/skill/confidence/mental ability will take me.

Thoroughly enjoying my running experience to date despite the breathlessness / aching joints / pains / and head to toe nettle stings (thats one for later :embarrassed: )

Thanks

Thanks, for the warm welcome guys, it can sometimes be a bit intimidating joining an already established group.

Went out for a 4 mile last night, so sitting here in work nursing aching legs but feeling all the better for it. Only problem being living in N.Wales, the scenery is beautiful but it's not exactly flat !! Is there anyone out there living in the Norfolk Broads / East Anglia way that wants to do a house swap for a year ? :p
