wondering about joining a club in Edinburgh. Anyone got any recommendations? I am about average speed - about 48min for 10K but would like to do a sub 45 min 10K. Thought joining a club might give me a boost but I am worried that I am too slow or that everyone takes it all too seriously. I like going to the gym as well as running - a bit of cross training does wonders for the knees and the upper body strength. I remember joining the Edinburgh Uni Hares and Hounds years ago and it was miserable, I got lapped so not up for anything too speedy.
All suggestions welcome. or should I just keep plodding alone?
