I have been cycling for quite a while now but i got into serious cycling more than a year ago and i have been doing serious miles ever since. I have loss a lot of weight from that too (from 98kgs to 75kgs). And now i want to add running to my life style. i have been contemplating on running since the start of this year but i have not got the will to do it. two days ago out of no where i just decided that i will run on my way home (5miles) and then i went for it. i was not too sure of what i was doing but i just started running.
My pacing was rubbish and sometimes im not sure if im running or jogging. my route involves hills and it was quite difficult running on descends as i dont know how not to run too fast. it took me 50mins in total to do 5 miles, 15mins of which was probably walking. I almost gave up halfway through but I decided not to give up and just keep running and eventually I made it home (woohoo).
I initially did not like the whole experience but i guess that can be blamed for my impulsiveness to run without preparing my self properly but looking back at my experience i realized how wonderfull running was and I really really want to do it again.
My goal now is to compete in a Duathlon event next year so im going to start running regularly alongside my cycling and I really want some advice from all you guys.
