Hi, just like to say hello to everyone on here, new to all this and lots of great info on these forums . great work .
Firstly i am a new runner and i am running to loose weight and feel good and i enjoy it, i have teamed up with my friend who is experienced of 3 years and is also a training fighter.
I am 26 years old. quite heavy 20 stone ish give or take and was a couch potato unitl recently.
I have been running around 2 and half month 2 -3 times a week and started with hill sprints to get my lungs working before i can do distance. now i have started doing distance and built up to about 5 miles but i cannot do it in one go ! The run incorporates hill climbs and downhills now the downhill im good at and can keep my pace, but the first mile and the up hills are a killer and i stop too many times now i no its in my head and i dunno how to overcome this ???
My friend is too pushy and is like come on come on and like mate you really should be doing this and now im feeling a little bit pushed away from training with him , but i cannot push myself enough on my own ???
I no am still new to this but i feel i should be doing this in 1 go now without stopping. any info or ideas would be much appreciated .
