Tmw will be my first 10k race, we will see how that goes and take it from there, I generally get out 3/4 times a week or as much as I can. I would love to do the half marathon but will see how the training goes in the next few months, Gaz is considering it as well. I hear you on the not walking in any of the race tmw I don't think that will happen to be honest, I'll report back tmw and let you know how it goes.

I'd go running a few times a week, it's great for stress relief and you always feel much better for it. It's such an easy activity to get into and maintain regularly.

I've done a few marathons but now I just stick to the 10k races/runs.

Achill ultramarathon end of august. 3 x 10 mile runs a week and a half marathon 0nce a week, training /distance will increase over the nxt few weeks/months find it important also to do a bit of strength training on days off from the running.

I was on a route of about 6k which I used to run a few times a week, then decided one new years day to try the Marathon in Cork that year. That was June Bank Holiday so took about 5 months to do that.

It's amazing him quickly it can build up if ya go 5-10% further each week

Have to agree you do feel so much better after you have done it

Took it up in my 3rd year of college, would regularly run 5km on the tradmill to finish my gym session. Recorded my times when I was in my final year and got my best at 21 minutes 50 seconds. Unfortunately around that time I went back playing Gaelic Football and the switching of surfaces caused damage to my knee ligaments. Happened again a year later when I was training for a triathlon so I dont go on treadmills anymore. Between general laziness and GAA & Soccer training, I don't go for a run as often anymore.

Currently training for another triathlon in 2 weeks time and decided to time myself for the Darkness Into Light run 2 weeks ago, surprised myself by doing it in 22 minutes 8 seconds, having trouble with my hamstring of late but really enjoyed it. Will be doing a lot more in the lead up to the race.

That sounds tough going, fair play.

Strength training is actually really effective for increasing aerobic capacity in endurance athletes. There's plenty of ways to train for distance running without having to lash out the distances.

Jaysus that's some time SH! I was on for 50mins up until 7km then I just crashed and slowed down but still reasonably happy considering I hadn't gone the full 10k distance before, onwards and upwards.

Do 12.5k 2 to 3 times a week ....takes well over an hour but just to keep the weight down and engine ticking over ... As someone mentioned great for stress relief too....have been feeling sore shins /lower legs recently so have started to do a bit of swimming ...lucky to have the choice of 2 beautiful 50 m pools where I live so it's great too

Fair play Sono, well done
 
Have just taken up the running too after about 2 years of doing nothing. Doing 4k twice a week at the minute (all that have time for) and its a struggle but am getting through it, be it with a couple of minutes rest whilst doing it. Only at it 3/4 weeks but can notice being able to go that little bit further each time before resting/stretching which is good I suppose. Aim is to try run a 5k race without stopping sometime during the summer and then maybe see if a 10k is possible down the line.
 
I agree with the feeling better part - the thoughts of going aren't too appealing, you question yourself when you're doing it & then when you're home and showered you feel the better of it and the head feels fresher. Good runners are a must though, had a old pair of Asics and had to upgrade at the weekend and noticed a huge difference last night on the ankles & knees.
 
Best of luck with it anyway, keep us updated
Some people just deserve a slap
