One step at a time, but whatever you're motivation, welcome and good luck with it all.
You'll get there and there is tonnes of support on here. Sure you'll get there.
It could be a couple of things, I think the main one possibly being too much too soon. Good efforts though don't get me wrong, but the distance you're covering including a hill seems a lot for only a second run.
When I run I do end up coughing, but that's coz I'm asthmatic and it will hurt so I set myself the challenge to push myself but not to the point my lungs hurt/burn. Sometimes that just means slowing down a bit, but can still do same distance, sometimes I walk. I would suggest if you feel your lungs hurting just slow down a bit and see how that goes.
The one thing I can say is that it will get easier with time and practice so keep at it and give yourself a big pat on the back, that's 2 runs down!!!
Grr - sort of forgot to go out. Busy day and then I found myself eating dinner straight after putting the baby to bed, when I remembered I had planned to go out. So, tomorrow, I will get my stuff ready and when I get home from my day out with the family - I will get changed and go straight out. And then I will come here and tell you all about it!
Well done to others who did get their brains in gear and got out the door!
Hi every one im just starting out too and ginger very much like you, had to have a word with myself.
Ive been feeling sluggish and cant be bothered for a while and i know its alot to do with eating rubbish, no exercise and being 3 stone over weight. The first part of my plan was to give up smoking... on christmas day my hubbie and i had been smoke free for 3 months I have thought about running on several occasions but was prepared with a list of excuses why i couldnt. Yes embaracement was a big part of it
The gym and exercise classes are out for me at the moment as my hubbie has just been made redundant, so i decided it was time to take the plunge and am too (trying) doing the C25k trainning programme. think i am going to have to repeat quite a few weeks though lol
Today apart from a disasterous run i was surprised to learn that i have lost about 4lb since the 29th of Dec so am feeling rather pleased with myself x
Ive also asked to goin the group on face book xx
Rachel- if you get a bit fitter, your archery will improve too- certainly I've found that running fitness has let me get away with much less trainig for the type of shooting I do.
Yes, it is a lot easier to fit running into a busy life than to get to a club night- it just needs a bit of thinknig ahead- can you ferry the kids somewhere, then run while they're doing what ever it is they do, and then you're ready to take them home, or can they go out on bikes alongside you while you run?
Hey everyone, id like to join this thread too, could do with some motivation! Im an on/off runner, seem to do really well for afew months every year then stop again so im hoping joining a thread and chatting to people will help keep me going this time. My aim for this year is just to stick at it, i know i enjoy it and it makes me feel good so why do i stop doing it?!
Did my first run on sat, 2 miles not sure of the time, pretty slow! the wind was so strong, afew times i was actually running and not moving bet it gave people in their cars a laugh!
think im going to enter into a 10k and use a training guide, i find it easier to stick to when i have a plan.
Hope everyones trainings going good
Only got out once last week.
Did however take the dog out for an hour walk three times.
We've just been up to the park and done 11 times walk 1 run 1 again.
Will walk again tomorrow and then shuffle on Wednesday.
Hope its going well for u all
I started in November, can I join in too? Got about four stone to lose, wanting to get into a 10k in the spring.
For a 5k, do you have a local Parkrun? There's one in Newcastle, and I'm thinking of going along in a couple of weeks time.
Well done everyone, seems like you're all making a brilliant start to the year. I know I can't wait to say YIPEE that's run 1 of 2012 done, but until I'm a bit better I'm going to have to stick to nice slow walks. Did just over 5k today so not as bad as it could be, will walk again tomorrow, prob about 4miles so see how that goes, but can't 'brisk' walk it yet either, but hey, at least its something!
Keep up the good work everyone, looking forward to reading more success stories soon, got to have something to give me drive while I'm off work
Maamalade - Exhibition Park, every Saturday - their site is here
Reckon I'll be there in two or three weeks time...
Angry bees - thanks for that, hopefully one day when I'm back home, and running again, will meet you there for a run Mum may take a little longer to convince, will find out next weekend when I see her just how serious she is.
Roy - Brilliant time on your run, quickest I ever got on 3 miles was 33 mins! Just don't overdo it, keep the motivation there and continue to enjoy it!
After a long spell of illness and slowly recovering I walked a total of 5.5km yesterday, but throughout the day and total took about hour and half ish, but given I'm still taking it easy and building strength aren't too unhappy. Today though I have up'd the pace and dug my stepper out, just couldn't face going outside Thought going to be tougher than a slow walk, but will try and do 10mins and ended up doing 20!!! Feeling really good for it too Going to head back to the cold outdoors tomorrow and do another walk but see if I can stretch the distance a bit, but take it nice and steady to see how I go.
Hope you are all feeling positive still and enjoying the progress and achievments that you have made.
as a beginner its nice to see a thread like this where everyone is really encouraging each other, found that sometimes people are a bit rude on some threads and it started putting me off posting anything. congratulations everyone for heading out and starting a journey for the new year......i only started yesterday and i'm aching lol!! today is a scheduled rest day then it back out on it tomorrow and thursday...hurts thinking about it.
