Hello! I'm just starting again after 20 years of Olympic-level booze and fags. I'm in a Run In England group which is organised by a couple of people at Green's in Cambridge. I can thoroughly recommend the programme for those who haven't walked the length of themselves for years. We're in Week 7 of 10 and aiming to do 5k in Week 10.

Hello Folks Old soak with running addiction due to lack of real social life Real nickname id BigChiefRunningBore, thx to exGF who never tired of my racing stories and moans. Thought would try and be helpful on here unlike on other running sites. Only really bought first mag as was bored at train station and curious about how the Mens element would be presented. Seems ok with a few useful bits. hope it stays the right side of ladish, otherwise I might have to contribute my post marathon shag stories, again. Chiefy ps is it unmanly to post 'Chiefyxx' ? probably

Hi Guys Well I am new to the running world, and have been motivated (I like to refer to it as pushed) by 3 friends to come running with them for a 5K run by the end of September. So hear I am all egger and willing to learn / pick up tips from the Magazine and you folks in the forums. Looking forward to it all. Andy

Hi all, I'm relatively new to this game too. Really liked the magazine, picked it up at the station and, although I haven't actually done much running yet, I intend to. I think the magazine comfortably straddles the line between running expertise and a readable lads mag. I tried Runners World but found it a bit too serious.

Hi I'm a lapsed runner who's thinking about putting his running pumps on again. I still keep fit with a lot of cycling but it takes up a lot of time to get a good workout. Have done most distances up to a half marathon with my best time being around 1.45, admittedly a few years ago now.

Glad to see some chat on here, fellas, keep it up and hopefully we'll have some good advice flying back and forth in no time. There seem to be a few of you looking at getting back into it after a break. For my part I'm pondering marathon No.4 next year which isn't bad considering I was a 16st prop forward as recently as 2005. I've got the Great South 10 mile run in October, anyone else entered for that? I've never done a 10-mile race before so it'll be interesting to see what sort of time I can do.

Hi all. Great Forum and Magazine. Just subscribed. I'm trying to get back into running after a few years break and am happy to soak up all the inspiration I can get. A few years ago I did a few fun runs and finally the Canterbury 10 mile road race which I finished with a really painful right knee through not enough training before-hand. I still find it difficult to get out as often as I would like, but was encouraged by a really good run yesterday despite not having gotten out for two weeks. (I think cycling in between helps a bit). Hoping to get out for a run tomorrow if it doesn't rain! At the moment I run for 20 minutes, then walk for 2 minutes, then run back for 20 minutes. I was pleased to see someone else, (sorry should've made a note of the name), used the BUPA guide to running. I remember using the 5k and 10k guides and finding them really useful. Cheers all. Orbea.

Hi Northumberland Here 40 Year old, never been accused of being fit in past :-) Just started running 5 weeks ago, already shaved 12ibs off my starting weight of 17,11 stone. Hard work this running lark, but its strangely addictive ! Really enjoying the sport, great magazine pitched right at me as 'Man who runs' rather than being a 'runner'. On week 6 of couch to 5k ; can just do 1 mile runs in one go....just ! Getting better every week. Got my eye on some 5k's in new year, Sunderland 10k in summer and if i dont break anything the Great North Run ! An audacious plan for one so fat :-0

Sup guys! I'm 31 and have been running for 6 months. (main aim to lose weight - 40lbs down so far) Only entered the Dublin Marathon on a whim and finished it quicker than that Chilean miner finished the NYCM yesterday. Just want to go faster and run the full thing without stopping next time! :) Hope everyone stays smiley through the cold winter running months!

Hi there, Getting back into running after many years off, managed a 26.25 min 5km at the weekend Park Run, so pleased with that after only a few weeks and at 59 years old. Been doing mostly trail running, but got some road shoes the other day as nights are dark and the ground where I normally practice is a swamp now. This weekend going down to the Yorkshire Dales and hope to get a run in over the moors. Cheers Hawkeye

Good evening Gents I'm making a bit of a comeback to running, did the Edinburgh marathon last year and then practically never ran again until last week. Even though I think I suffered a mild stroke on my first run back, it was great to get back out and I'm looking forward to getting some more miles in and pushing the needle on the scales back towards the 15 stone mark (it's flirting with 17 stone now !) 40 now so need to keep moving I'm in Heswall, Wirral. If anyones around and fancies a trot let me know Colin

Hi my name is Jim, I'm 46 and just started running in June doing a minute walking and a minute running. I tell you that first minute I thought I was going to die. however your fitness does seem to come up quite quickly. Me and the misses ran in the Hopetoun house 10k I managed a 1hr 18mins. she beat me to a 1hr 12. The good thing about doing this together is we can encourage each other and on those cold dark and wet nights. kick each other to go and run. I would like to thank our friend Joy for getting us into this it was seeing her losing weight and getting healthier. that inspired us. we call it the running with Joy club.
