Good morning all!
I'm about to start this running lark, having bought all of the kit yesterday.
It's grey, damp and miserable out there at the moment. Should I make sure I'm warm enough, and start with a lightweight jacket over my top, or should I assume I'm going to get warm, and just go out wearing a single layer? I don't really want to get hot halfway, and then have to strip off a layer and carry it round with me.
2nd question... I'm a 60+ female who is far more likely to listen to Mozart and Chopin than to hip-hop and Motown. Can anyone suggest a playlist that I might actually enjoy listening to? Maybe songs from the 60s or something? I have a feeling that, going by what I've sampled already, it might be the music that does my head in rather than the running!
Finally - the best bit of advice I've seen so far?... A week can take as long as necessary! I was worrying as to how I was going to get 3 runs into this 'week', given that I'm starting on a Wednesday, and have a busy weekend coming up. Bit obvious really, but reassuring to have it pointed out!
Thanks in advance.
