Nice to see people making a move forward. Well done all.
Dog and I did a 50 min walk last night and then 11x run 1 walk 1 this am at 0530!!!!
Wow, slowjoe, that's impressive.What you doing up so early???? At that time of day there is only one thing to say for that time and it's Dedication!
K-Anne - sounds like you're having a tough start, do stick with it though as it will get easier with time. Don't hurt thinking about it, enjoy! You're making progress and that's what counts. Well done for getting out there.
I'm hurting today, think overdid the sit ups yesterday,oops! Planning on going for a walk later, hope the weather picks up a bit though as it is that horrible fine drizzle here at the moment.
Oh well off to finish my brew
I work nights and even on days off tend to sleep during the day LOL
So if i finish work at 5 im home by ten past and go straight out. I find if I stop for a cup of tea I cant get going again.
That makes sense slowjoe, can't imagine working nights, imagine it would be hard going. Bet you get lots of peace when you're out doing your runs though which would be great
Can't wait till I get back to it, I feel like I'm chomping at the bit to get running again, but one step at a time and all that.
Its difficult to know when to get back to it Maam.
Better to wait a day too long than start back too early.
Sounds like great encouragement K, let us know how it goes.
As for my walk, I did 5.06km in 54.04! Still got another k to do as need to nip out again, but feeling really good for it. Only problem was part of the walk was my old running route and I just wanted to run Oh well! Going to save that for next week. Feeling like I could do it now, but as you say slowj, better to wait a little longer than do too much too soon.
In the words of K - Happy running everyone
Oh - has anyone heard from James????? Seemed really encouraged but not seen anything else from him
Fantastic day K, you did brilliant, bet you're feeling really good for it!
Know what you mean about getting up early. When I go back to work next week I'll be out the house at 6am everyday and not get home till just gone 7pm! So workouts will be before I go if I can drag myself out of bed, or once I get in providing I don't sit down first!!!
Surprisingly I haven't done anything since my walk, other than chill out Just trying to decide what I'm going to do tomorrow???
Sounds like you may have found your passion in life now, stuck on the streets forever - should we start calling you Forest Gump???
I'm looking at a gps watch thingy to track what I'm doing, fed up of taking my phone out with me. May have also just bought a cross trainer - good for alternative when weather crap etc
thanks Maam, i'd b flat out let alone chillin out after 5k lol.
great your getting the running bug Wilson well done you, got any goals in mind anyone?
can i be really dim and ask what a nike+ and a gps do? feel like i'm missing out on something lol
congratulations on the wedding!!!! mexico...amazing!!!!
i'm also aiming for a marathon but since i'm up here in scotland its the Loch Ness one at end of september EEEKK!!!! long way off ready.
things like anxiety are difficult to diagnose, so make sure your getting the right help, but i do personally believe running does help relieve stresses and tensions and so forth. before i had my accident i ran alot and was weeks away from first half marathon, i was in a relationship from hell and used running to help me relieve stress and anger (went a huge run the morning i split up with the guy lol) but then when i fell and was unable to move my ankle for couple a months let alone walk propery, i realy hit ock bottom and became deeply clinically depressed, seeked thehelp of a councillor and together we talked through my upset and the fact i would use exercise as a diversion but not necesserily to deal with issues. i got all the right help and advice and a year later i've never felt better and i'm able to run and it keeps me really happy. so make sure you take advantage of help offered to you, anxiety and depression are two diff things bought can be helped by councilling or even medication if thats a route you wanted to go through, though i'm sure your doc wil have bored you with this.......training for the marathon with your wedding in sight will be a fantastic and positive journey for you, excited to see how it goes so best of luck to you
as for facebook i had no pages come up when i searched for it, maybe see if Ginger can add my page to it or something? x
Nike+ sounds a great idea, heres me still in the dark ages with my reebok pedometer lol x
Sounds like everyone is having a great start to the year!
Ginger - fantastic news on dropping a dress size, bet that has given you one awesome boost!
I'm feeling much better, getting back into it slowly, did 30mins on my stepper this morning followed by some sit up's and push up's and loving it. Just have the urge to run, but going to wait till probably the weekend for that, don't want to do it too early and push myself back.
As for the iffy knee, take it easy, it could be that you're knees just need more time. I have had problems over the years with knee trouble and got advised not to do high impact sports, this is why I mix it up a bit with walking, stepper and soon to be cross trainer (just bought one )
Roy - The facebook page is New Year New Start - Get Running!
K - GPS is a watch that tracks your speed, distance etc by using GPS (bit like a sat nav) to know where you have gone.
Oh, this year is getting better and better. I have just bought myself a cross trainer for warm up, cool down, when the weather is crap etc. I've always wanted one and now I have, well once I go collect it in a couple weeks
Even better though, I don't have to take my phone out anymore, just bought, or should I say my lovely man has bought me a Garmin Forerunner 110 GPS watch
Can't wait to get running even more now
That's odd, I just typed New Year New Start and it came up with a list that New Year New Start - Get Running! was one of the options. I'd offer to add you to it, but it's a closed group so you'd need Ginger to find you and add you
As for you're life it definately sounds like it is getting there, and with a lot to focus on with work, running and of course the, what I imagine will be, spectacular wedding to look forward to I'd say you're turning the corner and good on you for keeping going.
When I went downhill it took me nearly 4 years before I saw a councellor and it then took me 2 years to get back towards even.
Since the beginning of last year I have started to feel like I've turned the corner, then meeting my partner convinced me of this. He has been a huge support and continues to be. He is so supportive of everything I do, especially my running
Here is to a great 2012 for everyone, full of health, happiness and of course Running
Oh well, sure Ginger will sort it out for ya.
Good spending in Decathlon, don't need anything just yet
I am not worthy lol.........tried the early morning run, and by early, i mean slept in for the 7 o'clock start so headed out at 8.......nightmare, proper sleepy rubber legged effort lol. don't know how people are managing to do it even earlier than 8am lolol, in my humble opinion, anything earlier than 8 o'clock is stupid o'clock......what a let down i am today gonna have to substitute a rest day for a normal evening run. Glorious day up here in sunny Glasgow which is a plus, hows the weather everywhere else?
i'm starting to feel like i'm really missing out in life without a Nike+ or a GPS lol, i have to take out my pedometer and my phone lol. soon as i'm finished i record my steps, miles and calories into my phone lol, pathetic, don't even know how accurate it is......I'm Like the Alan Partridge of running, proper cringey and old school lolol. not a good day for K haha......hope everyone does far better than i have today.
Happy Running Everyone.
