Hi All, I am a newbie here so please be gentle with me!
I am just starting out on my running journey, only previous experience was running / jogging 5k which I did on a treadmill and thinking back i never really clocked my times or any improvements.
Since then my fitness has extended to regular step and spin classes but never really much running.
I have signed up to the Great Manchester Run in 2014 - 10k. I also want to attempt a half marathon in the September / October time.
Yesterday I went to Sweatshop and got fitted for a proper pair of running shoes as my trainers are a tad too small and have a tendenciy to make my feet go numb.
First run tonight - either on the roads or at the gym on the treadmill. I have set up an Asics plan although it says not to start until December, so until them I am just going to do interval Run / Walk training to try and up my staminar. I then may redo my plan if my ability increases at all.
Have read through a few diaries on here and found them so interesting and motivating especially Booktrunk's diary, that I thought i would keep my own diary to hopefully see how my progress improves.
If anyone has any tips I would be very gratefull to learn from your experience.
