I made a few blogs last year on my running progress.
I reached 10KM distance which I was doing 3 times a week, best time 56 mins.
I have now converted from metric to statute and today I did my first 10 miles, 1:38mins.
Don't you youngsters start laughing, thats not a bad time for a veteran.

    I'm entering the Para 10 Challenge. I won't be wearing boots and carrying a 35lb pack. (you have to do it in 1hr 50min to beat the challenge.
    Seems you have to do that to join them, then they get you fit.

    @Bad you could fill your pack with all those Wii's you have.

    @cisko, thanks for the comment, please accept my condolences for the passing away of Liverpool.

    Thanks Gen, I need all the encouragement I can get.

    I'm doing two 3 mile runs, and one 10 mile run per week at the moment.
    PB's are 3 mile 26:03 mins, 10 mile 1hour:34 mins
    very slowly getting better.
