Re: And so it begins

I actually I know what you mean. For me, the winter is one of the biggest problems - I started the programme in lovely bright early autumn, when it was always a pleasure to run, but now it's so cold and dark and really difficult to fit the running in around working full time! I've booked to take par...

Re: And so it begins

Well done Flyboy! I'm going to try running faster too, I think. I keep missing runs as well. I think it's mostly because I'm finding it so much harder to get up in the mornings now it's darker (seriously I think there's something wrong with me :lol: )...

Hope so! I am seriously considering getting a dog when my work situation changes in the new year! Would be nice to have a running buddy :)

Looks like Cazrich42 is starting at the same time as you LinP! It's nice to have people at the same stage :)
