    Hello. I'm in my forties. I've cycled all of my life, well ok since I was five.
    I'm now getting into running.
    Any help and advice would be appreciated!!!
    I can walk long distances. At the moment I am walking and running.
    I go out for about 30 mins at a time.
    I'm getting a real buzz from it.

    I would say, don't rush to get to the end of a program, if you have a bad session/miss a session don't beat yourself up about it. It's ok to take a break or re-do a session.
    Listen to your body and if I needs time off then take it, better to do that than get ill or injured from pushing too hard.

    I started running 12 weeks ago by doing C25K, cough the bug, also started cycling couple times a week. Last night into week 2 of the 10k programme with zenlabs I pulled this outta the bag.

    12 weeks ago I was outta breath going up my stairs. Hated the way I looked and felt. Screenshot_20181101-202852.png

    Parkruns (5K) is a great way to meet other runners and you can go as fast or slow as you want. Highly recommended. As your time is recorded you can see if you're getting quicker over time.
