I am pretty new to running! Graduated from C25K 18 weeks ago now and stuck to 5k for a few weeks but it has been creeping up (longest run is 13 km)! On impulse, I booked into the Northampton Half Marathon in September - whoops. I tried a half marathon training plan but my legs couldn't do that so I am doing my own thing! 2 X 5k (one tempo and one slow) and a long run at the end of the week, this seems to be better for my legs. Mi will start swimming this week and I do some cycling too.
I am 52 years old and a stone overweight so not doing too bad for an old gel!
Not sure I could ever do a marathon but let's see, I love running and have so many adventures - mud, puddles, amazing views, wildlife, dodging dogs, woods and fields plus some town runs (wearing my C25K t shirt to wave the flag)!
Any tips for a newbie?? Julie 😀
