    Yeah I suppose being built like a beanpole means I have a really low base fitness level required to run.

    That said, a year ago I was dropping off the group after 5km and now I can do 5:00/km for an hour. I like the self-control required to not blow yourself to pieces after half a mile.

    Usually start attempting to run when the nights get lighter, tend to have peak fitness at two points, may just after football season finishes when I usually have a few weeks of attempting to keep myself in shape before I cbf then September/October after I start back at football before I get SAD. Don't do treadmills so only running on the road and never cbf to train for anything more than a 10k, found it easier doing a quick 5k when I got in from work and trying to beat my Pb all the time kept motivation up. Could do about 19:30 5k and 41:30 10k a couple of years ago but dread to think what I would manage now.

    I prefer beach running. Much tougher and better for your ankles and knees.

    Do you wear a red cap when you go running?

    I only ever run on road/concrete and have worried about the effect that would have on my knees and ankles.

    Can anyone suggest some good running shoes to use on such hard surfaces?

    I used to run about 10 ks per day (proof positive that a bad breakup can drive a man to anything)

    Secret is to settle on a rhythm, forget about pace and wear a hear monitor as it is clear evidence of when you are over doing it

    Spend money on shoes as there is no greater deterrent than sore calves

    You need to put miles in your legs so start with interval training (1 minute jog, 1 minute walk ad nauseam)

    Biggest tip - pick a route where attractive members of your chosen sexual fantasy are common

    You need to be fitted by someone who knows what they are doing

    Once they have established your strike pattern, it is down to the shoe type within the brand range

    Cant go wrong with Asics and Brooks IMO

    I wear Asics Kayano and they run to about $250 but are worth every cent as they last a while and you wont wake up feeling like a cripple

    contrary to what Big Shoe would have you believe, either barefoot or unpadded shoes are best. Forces you to use proper running technique where you engage the muscles in your foot and ankle instead of flopping your feet down and letting the joints wear it all.

    Yes, your feet will hurt like **** for the first few months but bear with it. Keep your distances relatively low and allow yourself recovery. Slowly build up but don't overly pressure yourself - just consistently get out there.

    I've lost my mojo and am currently nursing a foot injury.

    Once I'm back in the swing of things hoping to beat my half marathon PB at the Great Scottish in October and duck under 1:30. Depending on how my running goes once I'm over my injury I might look at the Loch Ness Marathon in September.

    Pretty quick mate so you can obviously run

    Trundling along at just over 4 minutes per k is no easy thing

    I have heard this from my sister's husband too - he's a big marathon runner and runs on the roads of Dubai, and even he advices barefoot or these basic flip flops

    Problem is I am never going to make running my main sport, but I'm just doing it to build cardio for Cricket and MMA. So I do not want to go through that period of pain in order to adjust to it, as it will negatively impact the sports I do want to get good at in the meanwhile, thus defeating the purpose of going running in the first place.

    I do want to eventually run a marathon at some point tho, so I guess when that time comes I can begin by first training with unpadded shoes (or barefoot if the surfaces are good enough) in order to get the form correct and the right muscles engaged before training for the marathon itself.
