First Ever 10k

Hi guys just thought I'd revisit you all, it's been a while. Today May 13th 2012 I ran my first ever 10k doing the Blackpool 10k in 62 mins 47 secs. This would never have happened without the Get Running app and to you the other app users and the owners of the site I will be forever thankful. I now ...

Re: Have you ever craved a run when you've never really done

Don't be afraid to go back a week and re-do days, as the saying goes 'its not a race' and before long you will be thinking how the hell did i run for 5, 10, 20 and then 30 mins withour stopping. It is a fantastic feeling when you pass each milestone...

Re: Gutted!

Mike shoes could have been the problem but not how you think!

He put a few pointers to me which gave me a lot more belief in myself and my running/jogging. I did the 25 min run a...
