    Oosh! Lengthy post is lengthy but some interesting food for thought there.

    I was doing 3x 30 mins a week but have dropped back to a 1 or 2 a week after being on hols so I reckon I'll start with getting back into the habit of three runs a week for a couple of weeks. Deffo need to get to grips with pacing myself. I get frustrated if I feel I'm running slowly but then push myself too early and I've found with all exercise (cycling, swimming, whateves) that it seems to take me longer than most people to warm up but once I am warmed up/in that sweet spot I can go longer than other people of similar fitness levels...

    I've taken against park runs because I've got a dislike of mass sports activities but I really should give it a go before I dismiss it outright.

    Also ver good approach to running to work with the walk 1st and last miles. Thanks!

    We found where they were being stored in Utretcht, still with roof bars and everything!! Mr Poots would not support me in a smash and grab. The swine.

    Spotted @mrs_socks yesterday at Peckham Rye heading North down Rye Lane. Hiyaaa! I was disappointed to see only a smidge of your new mermaid hair :(

    Shortly after spotted crazy stack courier guy heading South along Peckham Rye. Comment to the husband about crazy stack courier guy's complete lack of road safety and he said that he'd nearly crashed with him the other day and tole him "faacking hell. You've only just come back to work recovering from a broken back, how about trying to keep it that way?" so hopefully Mr Poots has resolved that issue for all of London's road users and he's seen the error of his ways.

    10% in distance or time?

    Hullo running thread - have recently completed the NHS Couch to 5k and wondering what next. Lots of conflicting advice from various sources on t'internet so I thought I'd add to that conflicting advice.

    I'm not really bothered about entering races but wanted to continue running as it turns out I kind of like it. The only goals I've got really are to be able to run to work by the winter when it's going to be less advisable to be running around dark parks by myself. Work is 5 miles and I can run 5k in just under 30mins at the mo.

    Should I just concentrate on getting more comfortable with running 5k for a couple of weeks and stick with that distance - endurance with come with sticking at it, right? Or should I be following some sort of programme?

    Good luck with this @Ecunard and everyone else involved.

    I'd be well up for this if it wasn't the last day of the tour (and I have a ver boozy day planned for sat!)

    Would anyone be up for doing the shorter loop in a couple of weekend's time (if you don't mind us nicking it @Ecunard !)
