New to Running!

Morning
I'm very new to this running thing and have been told I can get some great advice and support from the people on here. Is this true?

  • Yes, this is a great place for advice and support, but you are better off posting in the beginners board as Clubhouse tends to be a lot less serious.  There will be a lot of like minded people on the beginners board whereas here is more like a pub where you get a lot of banter and friendly abuse.
  • less serious?
    pub?
    banter?
    friendly abuse?

    I thought it was a running forum not a hang out for wannabe drunk masochistic comedians?
  • I think you'll find a lot of the people here are drinkers with a running problem image

    What makes you think the two are mutually exclusive?

  • Jj i would have thought better of you than to accuse me of being a Troll
  • *bewildered look*

    Accusation? Where? Really. The very idea.

    image indeed, but without the troll inference image
  • Such hurtful things being said and not much advice

  • You need advice ?

    Get decent shoes and rotate them.
    Listen to your body.
    Vaseline anything that moves.
    Be very suspicious of clowns.
    Don't run a Marathon at two weeks notice.
    Never respond to lifts to Silverstone threads.
    Yes they're all 26.2 miles. Apart from the ones that aren't.
    Yes your gps read a different length.

    Have fun.

    My top tip - never go out with a man who has bigger boobs that you do.

    Won't that make you run backwards?

  • Cougie - great advice thank you just one other thing. Where do you stand on running marathons in cycle gloves? Yeah or nay?
  • Mimaduck - I never said any of that
  • Marathons must always be run in cycling gloves. 26.2 miles of high fives can give you serious blisters !
