Does Edinburgh provide a training schedule?
I’d follow that or I know London does one.

Add 15min each week to your longest run and don’t go beyond 22k. It takes too much out of you to add additional miles. Sadly, you cannot train for that last 10k. It’s just sheer bloodymindedness.

Good luck. Look forward to reading about your progress

Cheers for the replies and advice.

Ran 10.5 miles yesterday in rain, sleet, hail and wind in just under an hour and a half so was pretty pleased with that as a starting point. Felt pretty good just a slight bit of stiffness this morning.

I’ve been having a little look online at reviews and what not for watches suited to running, ideally one that I can play Spotify through or download playlists from Spotify on to. It seems that apple watches aren’t the best for doing this as they don’t support Spotify. Anyone got any ideas or experiences with these?

I'm struggling with injuries. I was never really into running ever. I played loads of sports and probably abused my body when I was younger and fit. I smoked, drank and ate anything I wanted when I was playing footy and GAA. But I was good enough to get away with it. I gave it all in training so I kept my fitness good enough to play at a high standard. I also done a bit of boxing and dabbled in a few sports when I was young until I broke my wrist, so that had me always at a high level of fitness.

Then about a year or 18 months ago I started to enjoy running and tried to get into it properly. But I've had lots of injuries. Medial knee ligament, groin strains, very sore back and now peronneal tendonitis. I think it's payback from my body to me. I'm only 33 but it feels like I can't catch a break. I need to lose about two stone, but every time I feel a bit of fitness coming back and I push myself to get my times down I pick up an injury.


At the moment I'm trying to get back into it slowly, but I'm stupidly bloody competitive so I find it hard to hold back. But I know if I can take it easy for the next couple of months I could be ok to pick the pace up.

Last year I rushed myself to get running a 10k. I ran 10k to see where I was, but ran it too soon and got injured. It's been stop/start since then.

I'm aiming for a 10k at the start of May. So hopefully I get there.


Dickie when is your 10k?
