Re: Can I do it before I turn 50??

HI Jacster! I am in Aus too, best time to do it now while the sun is shining!! Also, make sure you do it before 8am as the heat will really hurt you!

Good luck! You go as fast as you need to :)

Re: Started Get Running today!

Also, you should really be trying to jog on grass. Grass does not have the same impact on the body as road does. This will help the problem. Watch your aches, as you may exasperate the problem and shin splints can be damaging. Invest in some good running shoes too, ones that will support your foot ...

Re: Running Pace & Distance

Oh my goodness JM...4ks in 20 minutes, I just got all excited that I hit the 4km mark in my 25min (and a bit) jog! You are a pro! I admire you doing it on a treadmill, I would of given up ages ago because I need the destination to motivate me. Although, come winter, a treadmill may have to be an opt...

Running Pace & Distance

I have just entered into the 'pro' section of the program (hehe) of the 25 minute jogs of Wk7. I have started using a GPS app that maps my distance and pace. At the moment I am just getting into it so I am not exactly winning any races! 8-) I would really like to know what pace/distance everyone els...

Re: I am ashamed of myself!

I decided to forget about Day 2 and I went straight into the 25 minutes, and completed it! Oooo the last 5 minutes was all psychological...I was trying to stop but I wouldn't let myself...I think the desperation of not wanting to repeat a week was far greater than any endurance barriers! Oh yes, I t...
