Hiya, I joined a running club a couple of weeks ago and can highly recommend it. Their slow run is also 5 - 7 miles but they tend to run for a mile or so and then stop and chat for a few minutes. The slow run has to cater for people of all abilities so I'd find out first whether you are expected to be able to run 5 - 7 miles in one go. That seems like and awful long way for new runners.I'm a bit worried about this one- I find that early evening's my best time to go running, but the trail around the woods/playing fields where I run at the mo is unlit and a bit spooky, so not a good idea if it's already dark by the time I finish work. So I've decided to join a club, but according to the club website, the slow group does 5-7 miles at between 8.5 and 9.5 mins/mile. As I can run neither that far nor that fast as yet, I'm going to have to train my butt off before I can even join in with the slowies! Ah well, there's nowt like a challenge to motivate you.
You'd probably scare the living daylights out of people - they would think you were the ghost of a miner come out of the pits, or something - or people would report the bobbing light as a UFO :lol:All my runs are on at least dimly lit roads, usually fairly well lit. If I ran well away from street lighting though, I'd probably use a head torch.
You surely don't mean proper interpersonal communication do you H? I mean speaking to a real human being type person is scary in this modern world of t'internet email and answering machines!The Internet is good, but sometimes you can't beat picking up the phone and talking to someone.
