    Been using foam roller and ran 16k yesterday - in agony afterwards! Going to have to rest up from running and find other things to do

    Unfortunately I am not a member of a gym and donít want to join one as when Iím running I donít have time for other gym sessions

    I have a kettlebell at home so Iím going to look at using that and potentially swimming on a pay as you go basis as well

    Ashridge Sprint Duathlon today. 5k first run, just 2.5k second one. The big advantage of being old is that I won my age group, and that means I have already qualified for the world championships in 2020. Though representing GBR at Europeans in June this year first.

    I understand time issues but would add that for the first time in my life (and I ran to a decent standard in my youth) having built in regular gym sessions I can run 3 times a week.

    I know this doesn't sound a lot but for me is a real triumph. you name it I struggle with it, hamstrings glutes itb lower back and shin splints lol

    Just wondered chaps, I purchased Mrs P a Garmin FR30 which talks to the Garmin App fine but I cannot get it to link with her Strava. I have linked them and they say they are linked but the runs are not copying over to the Strava App.

    Any ideas????

    I had the same issue a while back. Un-linking an re-linking seemed to sort it for me. If the files are showing up on your Garmin app then its certainly the link between that and Strava. Make sure there are no blocks via the privacy settings in Strava / Garmin app.

    Great effort...I went out last night and struggled to do 4km! Miserable weather.

    Still given that Iíve only started running this year (been doing Brit Mil Fitness for 2 years) Iím pleased to have hit 50km in January...

    Some good stuff here chaps and bloody well done.

    There is no doubt this really has given me the kick I needed and I am well and truly back enjoying a run again.

    Time is my biggest grind (I know, I know........) but managed a quick run with WVAC last night and with a few minutes tonight I rattled 2k out in 10:08, just need to carry that over another 3k and I will be getting somewhere I would like to be again...

    Its good to see what you lot are up to and keep it up..

    Cheers

    60k last week, the final being a 25k on Sunday. Prep going ok for Ultra in 10 weeks.

    Need to shift a bit of weight and stop drinking though.

    Been following this thread. I'm just starting to pick up my running again after a good year in 2018; pretty much my first year properly trying to run. Always said (and was told) since a young age that I was a 'non-runner'. I was determined to give it a go in 2018 after a number of false starts (no pun intended).

    I managed to get my consistent pace down to under 8 minute miles and completed an organised 10km which was a big deal for me! To begin with I struggled to run a single mile without stopping.

    My target for 2019 is a half marathon, with a whole summer to build up to it. In the ballot for one I have in mind towards the end of the year, failing that I will keep looking.

    My main advice to newcomers would be that it will be very hard when you start. It will hurt. You will feel sick. For me it was vital to record my time and distance (Strava for me) as it allowed me to see progress and stay motivated. I was surprised to see how quickly progress came, though I admit the first month or so was hard work. Well worth it though, particularly once you realise that runner's high is a real thing!

    Starting to up my distance as the weather starts to improve. Got a 10km in this weekend.

    On longer runs (10km+) I am often struggling to 'get my head straight'. I am constantly thinking about distance covered, distance to go, how much longer, this hurts, that aches etc. When I break out of this I become quite clear of mind and actually enjoy the run. Does anybody have any advice for pro-actively this?

    PS. I received my place for the half marathon I was after in September!

    I tend to try and switch off really and just run. I do check my pace often but just try and clear the brain and enjoy it. My brain works at 100mph all the time so itís nice to just stop thinking

    I find music helps as well and I know others use audio books as well

    I run with music on all my long slow runs. Have my favourite albums on shuffle, so one great song after another.

    16.1km so far this week, went out on Tuesday and had to stop and walk as I had a shooting pain right up my groin, out last night to try again and still pretty sore.
    Anyone had a groin injury and have a cure.....

    Slacked off for the last month (combination of work travel, weather, a heavy cold a not inconsiderable dose of 'can't be arsed'), but just dragged myself out for a very sedate 5k. That's sedate in the sense of slow, it was still harder work than I'd like. Still, need to get back into it and there's really no alternative to putting shoes on and getting on with it!

    Pack your running shoes in your work bagÖ. In the last few weeks Iíve run up and down a Norwegian Fjord and then along the river Tyne this weekÖ. Itís always an great way to see a city a strange town city when away with work...

    I know, I usually do, but we had 5 days in Stockholm in January and I didn't fancy the combination of very cold temperatures and snowy/icy streets. My shoes will be going off to NL with me this week for a run while I'm over.

    I had been wondering why your name wasn't coming upon Strava - now I know!
    Been having a very quiet week as doing a duathlon at Grafham Water tomorrow.

    My knee had been Ďplaying upí - last Sunday morning it felt ok and the weather was nice so I thought Iíd try again
    Only had 2 park runs under my belt so was pretty pleased with this - alas Iíve been paying for it all week, limping around- it felt fine on the run though
