- c25k…. how hard is this..
Keep going OP. I am by no means, a natural runners build. Mid 40’s, 6”1, 15st 10 with dodgy knees. I’ve been slowly building up the mileage each week since just before christmas and so far this week I’ve done 30 miles (9 miles is my furthest yet which I did this morning).Posted 4 years agoseaversMember
You might be ‘bike fit’ and you might have a good level of cardio fitness but running is surely going to use different muscles?! I can only speak from the perspective of biking loads then going to the gym thinking the running machine will be fine. Thing is it takes me (38) a couple of weeks before I can manage 5k without my legs hurting.
Build up, intervals etc. Give yourself some time to rest in between work outs.Posted 4 years agototalshellSubscriber

You’ll fit right in 🙂
Seriously, just rock up. Have a laugh, suffer for a bit, then grab a pint and continue having a laugh.
There are some damned slow runners in fell races, it’s not something to worry about. Just turn up and have a crack.
But FFS carry the required kit 👿Posted 4 years agofunkmasterpSubscriber
You’ll be fine.
I just did a 10k assault course last month with no training at all. I expected to die or not finish, but did it in an hour. With running, the first 15 to 20 minutes is the worst. Once your aerobic system kicks in you’ll zone out and find it easier. Use lots of energy gels, those things are life savers.
The only downside is that you might have t ‘bum shuffle’ down all stairs for two days afterwards 🙂
Best of luck to you and as others have said….enjoy!Posted 4 years ago
