Went out on Sunday morning for a small run, first time in about 5 years running and i have to say it was tough. I had the sense to not go too far first time out but only done 2 1/2 miles and it was bad. My leg muscles after run didn't know what had hit them and still sore today, i ran slow enough (eight and a half minute miles) but could't believe how hard the leg muscles got it.

I played football all my life until 8 years ago and took up cycling 4 years ago, wouldn't think twice about cycling 100 miles so am fit enough but couldn't believe what a 2 1/2 mile jog done to me...
In fairness it works both ways. As far as running goes I'd consider myself fairly fit at the moment.
I went back cycling though a month or so ago and my first time out I nearly collapsed off the bike at the end. It's like anything though, keep doing it and it gets better.
First night out I think I only averaged 21kph, after a few weeks I was doing the same route at 28kph.
Me personally though I don't get the same buzz from cycling as I do from running.

Have you tried going out in a group - lots of cycling clubs around Dublin that cater for beginners/improvers

Give mountain biking a go. I ride on the road and the MTB and get a much better buzz on the MTB. Can be very tough as well.

I haven't no. Maybe next year.
Marathon training just started so will be concentrating on that until end of October.

Laoislad i agree cycling can be a bit boring depending on the route but the last 10 mile of a decent size run and the group hits the turbo button for home and you're chewing the handle bars trying to hold on is great craic, your legs are burning beyond recognition and your lungs can't get enough oxygen in. Then sitting on the sofa like a busted flush all day after it knowing you emptied the tank and couldn't have given any more.
I can swim a little but i can't fly an inch

I would say the same ll. I don't get the same out of cycling. I do like it but just not as much as the running. I have done a few sportives etc too.

Have I got this Ďrunners knee? 
Started running again at start of July and have built up to 5k. I noticed when I started that I had pain in my right knee when I climbed up or downstairs especially walking down stairs. 
The pain  is surrounding my knee and not on kneecap itself. I continued to run as there was no pain in doing so  whatsoever. Do I need to stop running anyway until this goes away and would a physio be my best option? Thanks in advance for any help/advice

Is the pain along side your knee? Itís a shitty injury but will eventually work itís way out! Use the Roller and work it out, the T band can be a bollox but there are plenty better here at telling you from a professional background whatís best to do

Itís underneath and to a lesser extent above the kneecap. Havenít run since Friday and eased off a bit when descending stairs but itís still there
