I'll have to check the disctance I covered, but I lost 4 and a half stone, and got my PB for the 5K down to 25:41. Want to lose another stone and a half and get down towards the 22-23 minute mark.

Did my first run of the year yesterday. Took it quite easy as I have just got over a pulled calf, doing 12km in slightly over an hour.

Taking the bike out today for a spin today.

Did my second run of the year tonight. Took it quite easy as it was icy as anything on the pavements. And by "took it quite easy", I don't mean a JD style 18 min 5K! :)

With the gyms closed Iíve been out pounding the streets today. Iím not normally a runner so I was surprised at how far I got without needing a breather, probably a mile. So now Iím aiming to build on that and gently push myself towards a 5k target.

Go for it! Was that your first run? If so, a mile is very good going, you'll be doing 5K in no time.

Tentatively got on the running machine today as the sciatica has been easing off. Did about 25 minutes without obvious ill effects so touch wood Iíll be back out there soon.

I actually find that running helps my sciatica. It's when I sit around all day doing nothing that it flares up.

Yes it was my first ďproperĒ run, Iím used to doing cardio stuff in the gym but it felt totally different pounding the pavement. Iím going to continue and hopefully hit that 5k target soon.

Iím getting quite big differences in time/distance between my phone and my garmin watch. Anybody else had this occur, it was miles out yesterday?

That is odd, mine seems synced up. Is it a difference between what your watch is recording and the Garmin app? Or is the Garmin app as per your watch and then itís different on another running app, i.e. Strava?

My Garmin once reckoned Iíd broken the world mile record.

3 weeks into a 20 week training plan for a 100km ultramarathon in July. Racking up the ascent big time round these parts and averaging around 20+ metres ascent per km so far.
