    Runners...

    I have just joined the gym with the intention of getting into running. I started off today doing 5k which I done via walking mainly with some running thrown in. Do any more experienced runners have any hints or tips to get the most out of it???

    I've just started running (I can only run about 5k, I'm no expert) but my main tip is to go slowly. Run at half the speed you want to go in an ideal world. I can go further and get less tired if I take it easy, and the more you run the faster you'll get with time.
    Overall weight loss:



    Mini Goals:
    Hit 70kg (11 st)
    Run 5K
    Run 8K
    Run 25Km in total by 20/04/2014
