I also used to run 12-minute miles. It was my automatic pace unless I was actively trying to go faster (which never lasts long!). My automatic pace is now closer to 11 min/mile so you'll probably get faster - I did without even noticing!

Im quite slow too but the bulk of running should be at a fairly easy pace anyway!! Not so slow that its too easy but you are still breathing deeply and your heart is up. When i feel disheartened about my speed i use my heart rate monitor so i can actually see for sure that im working my heart and lungs. I save the fast running for structured speed sessions which i only do once a week during a race build up. X

Hello everybody, mind if I join you?

All this talk about running clubs is putting the fear of god into me, I have agreed to go to a taster session at sutton runners on Tuesday night.... I have to say I emailed the secretary and explained I am a beginner and would need walk breaks in the long runs and he was very supportive and said they have loads of runners my standard..... Gulp!
