Sup. Great forum you guys have here, glad I found you!

I’m 29, live down in Devon. I took up running about a year ago. I had never done any running before, I had this idea in my head that running to the shops would be beyond me... never was much in to regular exercise. I’m a fairly healthy chap, athletic build, never been overweight. I started running because a friend of mine was training for the Marathon Des Sables (he just got back from the event a couple of weeks ago). Now that’s way beyond me at the moment, but seeing him out training every other night I thought I would have a bash at running, and here I am! I stopped over the winter, but have started going out again twice a week, doing about 4 miles around where I live. I run at about 10 minutes a mile.

I have some decent trainers, purchased with some help from my local specialist sports shop. I am not much of an expert in running technique or nutrition, so am hoping to learn from you all as I build my fitness levels. I have been resting up this last week, done something to my right calf muscle, got some muscle ache. Googling for info was how I stumbled across runnersforum.co.uk.

Welcome to RF Nightwalker. Any queries ask away. While a lot of us aren't experts, there is always a lot of advice and encouragement.

10 minute miles sounds good for starters but don't get to attached to times (see my signature!)

Yep, does my head in having no face and looking like the grim reaper; everywhere I go I’ve got Yvette Fielding, a medium and about 5 guys with night vision cameras asking me to ‘make a noise, make some more noise’ blah blah blah :p
