I can run (well jog)
Cheers DD – I’ll be after some ergo tips from you soon!
You’d be better off asking clubber I reckon.
About the running, seriously, awesome stuff and sometimes you enjoy that first proper run so much, you want to go out and do it again the next day. But if you’re going from zero to hero, then give your body a chance to recover for a day before smashing it again. Great stuff though. 🙂Posted 4 years ago

I’m far too fat to be a runner, in fact I managed to quite well screw up my knee trying to run on a treadmill out of sight of the casual observer…
However I’ve recently decided to start running al fresco (yes I may be a bifter running around and yes the sight of me wobbling down the road may offend – but at least I’m doing something about being a fat bifter!) which has had the marvelous side effect of tightening the calves on ascents and consequently slowing my pace and lowering the impact on my knees.
So far I’m upto 4.5miles at 10:30mins/mile with 2miles without needing to stop and cry at my calves, although I am working on a 3km loop and trying to get to the point where I can manage that without needing to stop.
It’s hugely satisfying to have a new set of milestones to ‘tick off’ and hopefully I’m getting more of a workout than I manage on the bike.Posted 4 years agoolddogMember
I have come late to running too. Time poor now back at work (boo), so a good intense workout in the evening. But I can get sore knees if I do too much, so I’d watch for that. But I also find that I can back to back more days of exercise if I switch between cycling and running, must use different muscles or something? Anyway, enjoy the sun!Posted 4 years ago
