Hi all, just came across this site and had to say hello,
I'm a 53 year old bloke who does a bit of cycling, and until recently had never thought about running, my daughter runs and she said i ought to give it a go, but I never did.
4 weeks ago 3 members of my staff told me they had entered the race for life, and I thought, well if they can run 5k so can I ,
Have to say I found running more difficult than I thought I would. After a first 2 mile attempt , wearing worn out gym shoes and a tracksuit made for winter cycle training, I bought a decent pair of running shoes and have not looked back.
On Saturday I entered my first Parkrun, in Sewerby and finished in 29;44 , I just can't wait to go back ,
I'm running alternate days, 5 to 7 k distance before work, and cycling on the other days, with a day off once a week for walking,hope to pick up some good tips on here.
