Who’s just starting?

So run 1 day 1! Can’t run with people but is there anyone else who started today? I’ve scheduled my next run Wednesday. Thought tomorrow might be a bad idea 😉

Welcome. There’s a few started today and some declaring they start tomorrow, so quite a good sized group going to be your virtual running buddies on the same run. Lots of others will be running with you too.

If you started today, then running tomorrow would have been a very bad idea, a rest day between runs is vital in keeping the risk of injury, damaged muscles especially, down to a minimum, and it should be around a year of running before you consider running on consecutive days.

Enjoy your journey... you can do this.

Hi! I’ve done two runs, my third scheduled for Weds. I’m hoping I can stay motivated and will enjoy hearing how all the newbies are getting on. Feels like a big challenge at the moment as I’ve never liked running haha. Good luck everyone.

A day behind you, I started today. Looks like we have plenty of virtual running buddies at the same stage and a whole gang of experienced folk to keep us going. :)
