I do around 20 miles a week just now and looking to up that to 30 a week after christmas with the view of a half marathon in the spring. What milage are other "beginners" coming in at?
as a side note, when do we stop being beginners and start being "runners"??
Hi Amanda. I started running in Feb 2011 and by August, was sidelined through injury (Achilles tendinopathy). I started running again at the end of Jan 2012, so have about a year under my belt, split in two by a long rest.
I have a lot to learn but by taking things sensibly this year (unlike last year), and listening to the advice of the best runners at my club, I don't feel like a fraud when I now define myself as a runner. My miles have been around 35 as I have been prepping for a marathon (on Sat!). I now realise that running is a long game, with gains won over months and longer, and much at stake for the impatient....
How long have you been running?
