Hi All

I have decided to follow the BUPA - Beginner's 5km fun run: 8-week training programme as suggested by Taurencloud (Thanks Taurencloud)

I have just returned from the gym about half an hour ago and I am quite pleased with my first attempt.

Though just a 'drop in the ocean' so to speak for a lot of you guys and gals its an achievement for me - and I've got to start somewhere!

So today I have done the following:

Recumbant bike - 5mins (warm up)

Brisk walk - 6mins

Run 1 min, Walk 2 min X6 = 18 min

Walk - 6 mins (warm down) + 50 sit ups (but I normally do these anyway)


Am quite chuffed

That's right. It's all relative, really. In real terms, there's an argument which may say that you're actually achieving more than many of the "seasoned" runners. :cool:

Yeah, go for it Minxie and don't worry about time just enjoy the moment.

Was it a Nike advert that said "a 6 minute mile is just as far as 10 minute mile. Run easy"

Agood sentiment I think.
