    Did the run, was about 33 mins (waiting on official time) quite disappointed didnt push myself hard enough, because I had my breath back within about 10 paces

    I'm rubbish at pacing myself though, don't know how to get better at that?


    Tapatalking!

    In this heat its not all about times hun, its about being safe and looking after your body, that is still a great time, well done!!

    What a weekend...i havent stopped!!
    Saturday, i had my sons swimming lesson, the carnival parade with my running group which led to us doing a zumba session in front of everyone as a favour for a local zumba instructor, then a family bbq which involved running around the garden with the kids - that was meant to be my rest day!!!

    Then Sunday up and out early for my long run, which ended up too long as i just kept following the canal! Then back home, showered and back out the door for the Frodsham downhill race with my kids, then the festival, back home for another bbq and fun in the garden again, feel like I need another weekend to get over that one!!!

    All in all though a top week for me covering 32.42 miles :) x x x

    What a fun few days its been :)

    Thursday - went to club, did 5miles then lead my 5k group, when we got back to our meeting area, we ended up having a massive waterfight, so nice as we all needed to cool down

    Friday - went for a nice 5mile run in Delemere forest, so major hills, then to the pub for an orange juice and a giggle :)

    Saturday - busy day with my monkeys and no running in sight

    Sunday - early start with a 14 mile run then more family fun :)

    So another fab total for me this week, 33.1miles :) x x x

    Can I join?!

    I used to jog more than run I would give myself that much credit to call myself a runner just yet!!! Ha!! Anyway I haven't run since before I was pregnant with B so probably 2 years ago!!!

    Last Sunday I randomly decided to jump off the sofa a 8pm and go!! I only went about a mile but managed to keep going a lot further than I thought....then I couldn't walk for 3 days!!! Really over did it but get carried away!

    Anyway I went tonight so it's been a week!!! I went 2 miles and could probably of gone further but trying to learn to start little by little to build back up to the 7/8 miles I used to do!!!

    I'm expecting to ache again like hell Tomo!!!

    7 weeks to holidays so bikini body here we go!!! :) x

    Aw that's fab in this heat!!! Fair play!

    There was a big triathlon here last weekend and even guys who have completed things like the ironman all took a lot longer finishing because if this heat!!!

    Hoping to go again tonight!!!! Going to stick to 2/3 miles for a week or so, I'm terrible for over doing it then getting injured!!! How long do u think I should stick to that before increasing it by an extra 1/2 mile?? X

    Well done hunny, your doing absolutely fantastic :)
    Control your distance yourself at the minute, if you feel you can run an extra lamp post or an extra street then do it, don't worry about miles at the moment that will come when you start to feel comfortable doing longer distances.

    After 3 days running on the run, I've had a rest day last night and tonight, a long run in the morning, hoping its not too warm x x

    Early night for me tonight I'm racing tomorrow morning, not sure what to make of it as its the first time ive done a 10mile race, going to look at my 10k pace and my half marathon pace and look for a middle pace to work at.

    Hows everyone else getting on? x x x

    Just found this thread and thought I'd say hi as I've recently taken up running. At the moment I run about 5k 3 times a week and I love it. I'm planning to do the Great South Run next year and then would love to work up to a half marathon. How did your race go? xxx
