Re: Need Advice for July 22nd 5k - in Two weeks - thanks

I completed the app last Nov and have now run about 6 5ks and got quicker each time so this works for me , your run is in 2 weeks so doesn't leave you much time , your 1st week seems ok except on the Saturday I'd try and run 4 miles no matter how slow you have to run it , week 2 id run 2 miles on Mo...

Glad I used the strapping as my knee was aching alot at the end but at least I could run ok , so for saying I took it quite easy for the 1st half of the race I w...

Re: Pain in my left calf muscle

If you are stretching after each run I would say you aren't doing it enough , especially in the early weeks of the programme I would say you need to be doing a good 15 - 20 mins of good stretches . If not you may need to look at your trainers , get your running gait checked at a proper running shop ...

Re: Week 7 tough on lungs

From what you describe you are probably trying to run to quick , you should try a slower pace and see of that helps . Your ideal pace is when u can hold a conversation whilst running , your lung capacity will increase as you keep up your training . Hope this helps .

Re: Outdoors running v treadmill

I did all my runs outside bar the odd one when the weather didn't allow , I did this for the very reason you said its harder outside and I want...
