Your worst beginner’s mistake?

Running too fast. Managed about 90 seconds, and thought I was going to be sick. Slow and steady is the way to go.

Oh, and signing up for a marathon 4 months away, when I had only run a maximum of 3 miles..........

Overdoing it at the start, trying too hard to go too far too fast, just ended up with so many aches and pains that I could barely walk and had to take time out to recover... :angry:

Too much, too soon. Aching legs for the rest of the week means you can't get better :smile:

Couch to 5k can seem to drag at times, but it's a gentle way to get into a fairly high impact activity!
