half matathon fro 2.10 to 1.35 in how long?
Hey guys I have just run my first half a marathon (Nike Run to the beat)
my time was 2:10:44.. now while I am still happy to have finished it at all, I definetely want to improve my time.
what sort of time can I hope for? and in what timescale?
I have been running for about a year and before this race i did a 10k race, i am a 39yrs old male.
Any advice higly appreciated
Hi lokomp and congrats on your HM PB!
Just a newbie here so grab your pinch of salt Anything is possible however going from 9:58mm to 7:14mm will need lots of (hard) work. There should be plenty of race pace/training plans around to give you an idea of what you need to do to improve. I've never run a HM but would be over the moon with a time of 2:10:44
Good luck in your quest and let us know how you progress.
thank you Andy, Dont get me wrong I am over the moon, I just feel that improving my times is my next step. that will keep me going whatever is the weather!!
Well yes, we all want to improve so go for it! I'm about to start a 12 week training plan to do my first 10k in 60 minutes (9:39mm) and would be over the moon with that too
