Any other runners here?

I've been doing it for a few years now but have done it more seriously for the last couple of months since joining a local running club.

On Saturday I ran my first half marathon of the year and managed to shave 11 minutes off my previous time for the same course. Happy with that. I have another two lined up this year with some smaller races in between.

Now I know I can do it, I really enjoy it. It's a great feeling being able to just go out and run for miles. I'm still way off a full marathon though, but who knows.

If anyone uses MapMyRun, let me know.

Yeah, there's definitely something addictive about running once you get past the searing pain. What was your time in the end if you don't mind me asking?

For anyone who is either interested in running (or just wishes that runs were a bit more interesting), I really recommend a great little app called Zombies, Run!. It's a free GPS based running app integrated with zombie post-apocalyptia storyline. There are three different levels of ability and the basic structure is a basic pace riddled with short bursts to escape the zombies! It's a real good laugh actually, you pick up items along the way and it just adds an extra dimension to a run instead of the same old music playlists which do get annoying after a while.

In the end it was 2:17:14. Still training for sub 2 hours. For this one I was out training for nearly 5 weeks with a foot then knee injury. Nightmare.

Aye not bad at all, that. I find the hardest thing with most fitness phases is getting started. Once you've broken yourself in, really is best to stick with it imo.

I've run a half marathon once and I feel that anything under 2:30 is respectable. I've done a couple of track sessions too which is pretty good if you're time conscious but from my experience there's no effective way of replicating road running.

I'm not a half marathon runner or cut out for road running but have completed a few obstacle course races. My last one was the 12km Ram Run. Training for it was dogged by shin splints, injuries and lack of patience. I use map my run but doesn't really have an option for hunrdling 4 foot walls so it's mainly just to log distance travelled.

Went for my first run in about 8 years on the weekend, running in shoes too big for me and having to stop after about 2 minutes at best, whereupon I felt like someone had taken a sledgehammer to my chest and throat. I could only run a mile or so back in the day, but this was something of a sobering experience on how truly unfit I have become. It's taken my legs a couple of days to recover from it, but I received the pair of running shoes I ordered today (in the correct size), and I'm looking at giving the same route another shot tomorrow, with my aim to put a little more distance on it before I have to rest again. Going to be a long road back I think.

I like going for runs every now and then. Helps me keep my weight down and my mind focused on something else when I'm stressed. I remember planning out a cardio workout for myself just to lose weight.

I had the same thing. Start2Run programs work miracles.

Yeah, Couch2(to)5k is good too.

I'll be heading out tonight as I haven't been since the half. Probably a 10k.

I've never been a good runner. I have asthma. But since August 3rd, 2015, I've been working out regularly. I do sprints of whatever I could comfortably do (I have asthma and no access to an inhaler xD).
I'm doing so much better. I can set my treadmill up to a pace of 7, sometimes 8, for a good solid minute. Now generally I start jogging at a pace of 6.3 for a good five minutes. My goal is to get comfortable jogging 10 minutes at a pace of 5.1 for 15 minutes.

The only reason I haven't given up is because I had a friend say that it took her A LONG TIME to get to what she does, which is a good half hour, just jogging... I wanna say her pacing was like a 5.6. That'd be a dream for me. ^^

Unfortunately, I don't perform any better because I struggle with nutrition... ):

I started running to lose my body fat. I think any exercise is good exercise, but when it comes to losing weight, it is hard to beat running. Running is one of the most efficient ways to burn calories. You can read more benefits of running to lose weight over the web.

Now that is one elaborate bot right there.
