I can't wait to get going again. My 40 minutes daily walking is really helping. I want to start back exercising regularly even if it's just 10 min. I might try the gym on Wednesday but no running yet. I am aiming to be walking 3.5km before I start.I've just checked and this year the Bradford run is a half-marathon on 2nd October. I might not be able to be ready for that but I want to run the first full marathon (which I expect will be after the lake is finished).

Me - im planning on properly getting back onto the wagon again tomorrow. I prefer running on the treadmill but might go outside seeing as the weather is nice. Had been thinking about following this plan: http://www.running4w...10/04/5kBeg.pdf

Hey good to see you all on board! Id prefer treadmill too but it's so far away to go to the gym! Lol And my car is stuck in the drive so running round the block it is! Then I'll get my bike out! Hopefully once my bf cleans out our tiny cupboard I can get my bike in! Planning on running tomorrow evening! Hope I can stay motivated xx

I am planning on making the most of the sunshine and my annual leave and am going to go on a nice walk (haven't decided where yet) and then going to the gym later. Did a 5 mile walk at Glen Doll yesterday - was lovely :)

How was step to the beat bookhunter!? That sounds fun!! Is it a wii game!? It was chucking down here and I was gonna do wii too but when I got home it wasn't raining anymore so I was good! I went for a run around the block! Just a little one! A mile in 11 mins- chuffed with that! Legs sore from Monday and can feel my shins a lot! Was going to go further but I don't want to injure myself so I'm happy with round the block! Theres a few inclines there that you don't notice in the car too!! Eek!! My initial plan is to do 2/3 during the week around the 1/2 miles and then to do a longer 2/3 mile at the weekend depending on fitness levels! Haha Hows everyone else getting on!? Xx

I managed to calculate the half-marathon speed I need to aim for if I'm going to do it in under 2 hrs 30 (which is quite long enough). The plan involes walking for 3 minutes and running for 1. There are a few options but I think I'd prefer fast running and slower walking but I have 9 weeks to get back into it before deciding if I'm doing it and if I should run or just walk.
