Thanks for the encouragement Mary. I am sure it will get bit quicker if I persist. I do feel a lot better for the running. trouble is I don't really enjoy it much, and these silly short legs and bad hip means tiny little step span. I go as fast as I can, but don't get very far :-)
I am looking forward to Race for life, even if I end up walking most of it, we will have a good laugh.
I did the post because I have this week off and want to sort out what is working and what isn't, because I don't want to give in, but am finding VERY difficult to keep going as I am, mainly due to time pressures. Better to cut back than stop!
I could maybe do with joining some kind of fitness club and have someone to run with, but the same problem remains, working nights, on assorted days, I can never say what days I can do anything.

I will keep up with the treadmill and see how it goes.

Hi Mary

Thanks for your comment about my swimming. I have been swimming for years and have done the Swimathon (5,000m) 6 or 7 times since 1991. I completed the first one (200 lengths of 25m pool) in 2 hours 15 minutes and finished last year's in 1 hour 52 minutes. When I was at university in 2006/7 I trained with the university swim team although I couldn't compete in their team as I was too old. Since then I have continued to train using the Swimfit training plans (they have 4 different levels - shape and tone, health, fitness and competitive) during the winter and go running in the summer. I do a mixture of front crawl (that is now my dominant stroke) and breast stroke.

Your distance/time of 64 lengths in 55 minutes is nothing to be sniffed at and with practice will get better.
