    Good site this and if you make your run's public others can see them, helpful to see existing route's in your area.
    I get up when I want except on Wednesdays when I get rudely awaken by the dustmen.

      Anyone any ideas how to recover from shin splints?

      Had it bad after the Reading Half Marathon in March so stopped training completly since then but can't get rid. Tried a very short run last week and they were killing the next day !
      Try ice. 5 mins every couple of hours. I had them really badly about 15 yrs ago during my 1st marathon training.

      There is nothing you can do about shin splints. The only solution is to rest until it goes away.

      However, once healed, persistant running will eventually more or less eliminate this problem eventually. You just stop getting them.

      When you get back to running, be careful to build up your milage very slowly though. Whilst this is good advice generally it is a must for some injuries like splints.
      And this

      Spot on, I havent had them again since, just other injuries

      I registered for the Hove Park run, can't do it tomorrow as I don't finish work till 6am and I need my beauty sleep before the Albion but I do intend to get involved when work permits. Did 5 miles in the rain yesterday and starting to think about proper training plans for the marathon in April.
      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      Runner's World has a wide range of marathon plans for every type of runner you can think of. You will need to subscribe to the magazine, which is not a bad thing in itself, to get access though.

      I've just started to give jogging/running a go recently. I use to swim a lot, but a really nasty ear infection has put paid to that for a while. I've been running 3 or 4 times a week for the past 3 weeks and whilst only managing to run a mile in about 7.5 mins I've already seen an improvemment in my performance. I think I might start to up the distance now, maybe only by adding a little bit on each week as I don't want to push it too hard and get an injury.

      Big thing I've noticed though is that its a totally different technique to swimming, a lot more demanding on different areas of the body.

      Any hints or tips for a newbie would be most welcome.

      Anyone else doing the New Forest marathon on 26th September? My first full marathon having done several halfs and loads of 10ks in the last 2.5 years since starting at 41. Its undulating (not sure how hilly) so I'm using it as a dress rehearsal for a fast "flat" Brighton next year.

      It does make me chuckle when some target a marathon as their first race, rather than build up through race distances, and then wonder why its so tough or give up.

      Rather than bother with websites to check on runs, if you can afford one, I would highly recommend a Garmin GPS watch. My basic 205 (no heart rate monitor) cost £110 new on Amazon, and its transformed my training/pacing etc.

      I got shinsplints when I first started, but after proper rest they do go away, and as long as you keep the training up, wont come back. Would avoid hills in the early days until your muscles attached to your shins have caught up with your enthusiasm!!

      Yeah, swiming/jogging are completely different which I found out the hard way when coming back to jogging after a prolonged period of swimming when resting my injured foot!!

      I do wonder how people train for triathalons to be honest.

      I'm quite tempted to sign up for this:

      I'm doing the Folkestone 1/2 marathon on the 26th September, aiming for sub 1.40 and then the Ashford 10k 2 weeks later when I am aiming for a sub 45 - getting below 40 is hard.

      Have been training loads and feeling pretty fit, did 16km of x country on sunday in 1h25 so should be on track!
