dunno just how accurate that is though as i felt like i had a pretty bad drop between 8 & 9, almost gave up.

Recorded my first run today, have been running only for a couple of weeks, i managed 5 miles in 43 minutes! wanted to know if this was a reasonable time for a beginner and if itd be worth joining a running club of sorts or to train a bit more before joining!
Also using my flyknits as running shoes and there pretty good IMO

8m 30s(ish) per mile is a pretty decent pace.
I prefer going it alone however most clubs just encourage running so would accept members whatever their standard I would imagine. Are you using anything other than a stopwatch to record your run? iPhone/android apps? Strava? Nike+? Garmin? If it's gonna be a regular thing you'll probably get stat obsessed pretty soon.

I think the nike run app would work alot better with an arm band (phone holder) or the chip, although was happy with the stats it gave me back as well as it speaking to me during my run telling me my speed, distance etc.
Kind of want to do a 10k now, just as a bench mark of where im at now, to build upon.
Also im currently running with my Nike Flyknits, think these will be okay to begin with?

Don't get too hung up on footwear. As long as you're comfy with the kicks that you're running in then yeah, use 'em. If you're still running regularly in a couple of months then you could check out some dedicated shoes then. Just enjoy it.

Just as a reference point what would you expect me to come back saying id ran 10k in?
10 Aug 2013 23:19
Well, 10k is just over 6 miles so if you keep at the pace that you ran today you'd be looking at around the 53 minute mark. Again, don't get too hung up on time this early on, just get regular runs in and you'll find that your time will drop the more you do and the fitter and more in tune with this type of exercise your body becomes.

— lunarglide 4 shield when it snows / rains
— lunarglide 4 normal when its been raining
— original flyknit racer when its dry
never had an injury with any of them, i regularly run different routes between 7-13km runs (depending on how much time/can be bothered)
I run no less than 3 times a week but usually 5 no more than 6.
the flywire in all of them is what gives the support, then it just comes down to how you run really, the flyknits are worth getting in my opinion totally worth it had them since release date last year.
