I am not a beginer as such done about 50 halfs (PV1.35) and 11 marathons (PB 3.42) but last was in 2006. I was never a savvy trainer just used to go out and run no speed work or anything fancy - regret it now as if I structured my training sure I could have got better times
Now back at it and struggling to run 3 miles in 28 mins ! Aiming for a half next August (Helensburgh) so wgat s best ? stick at 3 miles till times improve or increase distance ? Shall I stick at 3 until I can run this in the time I am aiming for for half (per mile wise!) ?
I took two months off. That was bloody hard. I came back in, thinking i could do it at the same level. Big mistake. Just make sure you dont end up hating the sport. In the months since starting again, the pain, which normally my senses override i have not been able too. Only just now, feeling that love, and ignoring that pain again...
Thanks both !!
Ran 4 days last week and one so far this. Its harder than I thought and am trying to "run before I can walk" but still remember the "Glory days" and am determined to get round that half in around 1:50 !!
Feels good to be back at it
