  1. Speeding sloth, I have to tell you: don't give up but do slow down, if both your knees are hurting, take a few more days until pain is gone, it won't do you any good to run like this. That's exactly what I have done thorough out this program, I began running x3 a week, then when my legs were sore I reduced it to x2 or sometimes even just x1 run a week when required due to soreness, listen to your body, give it a rest, this is all new for our bodies, too fast too soon and you'll have to stop all together, and you'll regret it, I stopped at week 9 of the app as I found that stopping for a minute
  2. Hello djplong. That's a hell of a story, thank you for sharing it, put me in a pretty bad light tho, I was just lazy, you... You are an inspiration to me! Your effort was a lot harder than the one I put.. im very happy for you though, I hope that you continue, make good progress and feel happy, where can I find the full thread you mentioned? I'd like to know more about it
  3. Thanks Jane and Rob, I feel this is the beginning of an amazing journey. My poor spoiled baby is going to have to go to nursery
  4. How funny, I like eating myself, that's why I run in the morning and on an empty stomach, that way I don't feel cramp about eating a super duper and calorific breakfast, try it! Don't give up, after the long 20 minute run its starts to feel awesome and you see your self improving in every possible way and feel like you are the best! Try listening to music, Spotify offers a premium 7 day trial so you can listen to whatever you want! Try getting your friends family to run with you, time goes flying then and you don't find yourself thinking of stoping to walk, or giving up half way, cos you're
  5. Hi there, I'm no expert but I can tell you that the heavier you are the more strain on your bones, I wouldn't run every other day, in fact, I weight 72kg, when I started religiously running every other day, my body could not accept it, so most of the times I waited to recover, even if that meant 3-4 days with no running, yesterday, after about 3 months of starting I did my first 10k and today I feel no pain what so ever, I still achieved this goal, only not how it was marked by the app, listening to my heavy body, waiting for my legs to recover, don't rush or you'll hurt your self!
  6. Hello everyone, when I start doing something I know little of, or think I will struggle achieving, it really helps me to find motivation in success stories so here goes one, I hope it gets a few arses off the couches.. I'm going to start telling you that I've never really stuck to anything, I am not very patient and I get demotivated quite quickly, I'm also a very proud person so these all in combination make me a rubbish candidate for success in any resolution I take up. I never liked sports, never mind running, I wouldn't understand why people did it really, I thought it was purely fitness
  7. Ok, I just read the response and the good news, that's awesome!
  8. Ohhh bloody h!!! Now I see my post!
  9. Hello everybody! I thought I posted something on this thread yesterday, didn't i? I was praising Azatol for his determination as with such obstacle I would have probably have a good enough excuse to give it up, although.. I'm not so sure, this is very addictive, i hope your knee gives up and stops playing up Azatol, and thank you for telling everyone about it, this is definitely inspirational to all those who don't have a good enough excuse and opt for giving up. A few weeks ago I posted the question "should I run when in pain?" Well, today my left shin was pulling and burning again, I was thi
  10. That's a wonderful idea! run girl run you go girl!
  11. You seem a very strong person, that obstacle would be enough to have an excuse for not exercising... Or so I think! So you don't feel pain during your runs only after? The picture you posted shows your 5,1 km in 31,2 minutes, that means your going almost 10km/h, that is a very quick pace to run for 5 km, I guess its inevitable that one tries to improve and not slow down... I do hope your pain ceases, try and take it easy and your doctor advised and just as you advise others, this sport sadly makes you your only opponent and the hardest to beat. Take care xx
  12. Hello, I've just remembered about the chocolate post! So you are allergic? That sucks! What are you allergic to exactly? I was talking to a friend that came for dinner with his wife the other day, he was once overweight and now he is obsessed with a healthy lifestyle, I told them I started running, he was telling me that I one was to eat before running, the best thing to eat are carbohydrates, the purer the better, so a fruit would be ideal, that would not only give us energy but it would make the stored fat go into our muscles... Or something like that, he is a scientist, so he knows what he
  13. Thanks Azatol, I'm trying my best, I'm a perfectionist, if I start experiencing problems I'll slow right down
  14. That is an achievement! I'm So jealous! Today I ran for 22 minutes and was having negative- giving up thoughts from minute 7 thorough out, I'm being religious about keeping up the required speed but obviously that makes it very hard, I managed to finish but it was the first time since starting this journey that I wondered if I'll ever be able to run a 10k, I did a third of that today and it was harder mentally that physically, I'm just not used to make any unnecessary effort for more than 10 minutes and it's overwhelming to all of a sudden be running for such a long time, I wonder I will get
