Starting Again

Its been a few years since I've run,  I've put on a few stone and feel a lot more lethargic.  Today was the day I decided to turn things round and start running again.  Its going to be a long journey till I get to the point of being able to go out for an easy 30 minute run again.

I've decided to follow the Runners World run walk method, so today was a 30 minute outing with 8 x 1min run 90s walk.  It was enjoyable, and felt good to be able to run even if only for a few minutes.

Here's to Thursday, when I go again.  Slow and steady does it.

  • Well done Preston Plodder. The hardest step is always the first one.
  • Hello to everyone,
    I am new to the forum as writing, but I was reading and learning a few months before I create an account. I am on the same boat. I started March slowly. I follow the Garmin Fenix 5 course to do the 5K after 12 weeks and I made it. Now I follow the next course for 10K. I do well so far. My pace is horrible I think I do 10K in 1 and 5 minutes about. The race is on 6 October. I am not smoking but vaping a lot. I want to be free from that after 3 years. I smoked a lot in my life, but I think I can do it. I am 44 years old I know its to late for racings but I dont want to race I want to be helthy. Sorry for the long post.

  • Well done nvlass - it's not about the pace, it's about what you achieve. And just getting out there and doing something means you've achieved something.
