Re: New and desperately unfit hello and diary :)

Hey Jen and Frankie :) I've also just tried a treadmill. I joined a gym so that I can do some classes and yoga to complement the running. I had to do the induction so while I was there I used the treadmill and it was fine. Ill use it when I can't get out because of snow (its supposed to be coming to...

Re: New and desperately unfit hello and diary :)

Go for it Frankie :)

I read somewhere that when you've been fit before its that bit easier to get some fitness back than if youre doing it for the first time. Enjoy the plan Frankie and I wish you all the very best xx

Re: Keep Running - 5to10k

I finished the get running app on Christmas Eve and it has been fantastic. I'm now doing the 'bridge to 10k' app which was mentioned here and that looks good enough. Fingers crossed!

Re: New and desperately unfit hello and diary :)

W9 .. I skipped the 28 minute runs and a 30 min run because I ran 30 mins last time out. So I was surprised to notice just now that the app says I've finished! I must have skipped one too many. So it says I've finished and I feel like I have. I ran 35 mins this morning and that completes a route I l...

Re: New and desperately unfit hello and diary :)

Thanks for the encouragement :) I'm feeling really good about running so I know what you mean. Today was W7R2 It went well. I do get a bit of an energy slump after about 5 mins. Not sure what that's about but it seems to be a pattern. I was running along quite well when Claire said that I'd finished...
