hi ya everyone

i am as you guessed new to this forum and indeed running. i have done a little bit of runing but that was ages ago, and only a mile or so.

there so a few reasons for me starting up runing again. they are

* my gp has told me i need to exercise for health reasons. i have a few conditions including prediabetes.

* i want to be able to run a fun run in merory of my a few family members who died last year.

* it is something i would like to do to get fit.

i have run a few fun runs only 5 km's but would love to run longer ones. my insperation is my brother who belongs to a running club and is a very good runner. he complete a marathon last year in three hours thiry mins.

today i managed to run a mile and a half in 14 mins. not sure if this is good? i have only started last week running home from work. the way i look at it is i have to get home from work and the only way is to run. i save all that money on fares and get exercise to. best of both worlds.

take care sarah

ps sorry for bad spelling.

14mins for a mile and a half is good going for anyone, new or old. But it's not the time that counts. Enjoying it is the main objective for me and sometimes getting that motivation to get out there is the hardest part.

Once I'm out there I always enjoy it and always feel that I could have done more. Sadly the time available always cuts my runs short.

Anyway welcome to RF

Welcome Sarah.

From reading your posts I see no reason why you can`t go from strenght to strenght.

Well done and good luck.

Dave

Hi Sarah... how come the blood pressure monitor is stopping you from running? surely you don't need it on all the time? If so then that's pretty unfortunate :(

I hope you don't think I'm patronising but if it makes life any easier for you there's a spell checker you can use which is pretty handy :)
