Hi all, I joined here a couple of years back as I wanted to get into running, did a 10k and felt amazing, then life overtook me and I've spent the past couple of years in a bit of a mess. I'm back to normal now (though a stone heavier), and I'm ready to get back into it. My aim was to build up slowly, but I've actually now got a place at the GNR in September. Tried to go out for a run last night but I can barely make 30 seconds without becoming out of breath/purple/dizzy. I can't slow down any more because I'm practically walking anyway! Firstly - am I insane to even think I could do it? Has anyone else gone from scratch to that in that kind of time? Should I just aim for a 5k and give up on the GNR idea now, focus on a smaller goal instead? Secondly - I get myself in a rut as I get very over-conscious/panicky about people seeing me when I run (or attempt to, as it would be), so I was thinking to start getting my fitness back I'd get myself an entry level treadmill - if it's indoors at my house I'll be able to focus on training, rated than worrying about being in public. Then when I get comfortable bad exercising I'll go back to doing 2/3 of my runs outside. What do you think? Sorry for the questions, just hoping maybe people have been in the same boat and have some words of wisdom!
