(I first put this on the beginner's section but perhaps that wasn't the best place for it.)
I started running three weeks ago when I decided I'd like to enter the City of Liverpool 10K, in October.
I quickly had doubts when I ran on the treadmill of my local gym and struggled to run 2 miles. Though I'm quite confident now as I managed to run 10k yesterday without falling to bits (62 mins). However I've managed to bruise the ball of my foot - I know you're not doctors (though I guess some of you must be) but, am I likely to be doing myself damage by doing to much too soon, are my shoes all wrong or is it merely the extra use and something I'll get used to?
And secondly, when will I get confirmation of my place in the race I've entered - has anyone out there entered it too?
