Thanks, SH, but it's not the running that I'm surprised at being able to do, it's the fact that I've been able to set regular targets, daily targets and actually stick to them. I mean 26.2 miles is a ruddy long way to run and early on I felt it would be near impossible - just like stopping drinking felt in the early days - but all I've had to do is not focus on the end event (running 26.2 miles), just do the next training run that's planned. And not to overdo things so I don't injure myself, yet keep on increasing the distance slowly, and gradually come out of my comfort zone, week by week.

Running and recovery seem to have a lot in common.

But really, I've never been a 'finisher' and I've just about completed my marathon training. Maybe I'm speaking too soon? :mrgreen:

I'll post again here when I've ran the thing; 20 Jan 13!

Tosh, oh I get it. Setting targets and then meeting the targets. Yes, I too learned how to set and met targets in sobriety. Hawk

Never a dull moment here :D

Wow Ann that I admire! Jim (gym) and I decided we really don't like each other when I was about 25 or 26 so we agreed to avoid meeting again. So that's not a change I foresee happening anywhere in my near future :D AND I'm a smoker so nope, best I steer clear at this stage.

But well done! Work that body :D

Well done, Ann. Lifting weights is great for keeping our biological clocks younger.

Did the gym give you an induction and provide any help with a training program?
