Time constraints only allow me to train twice a week. I do a long run at the weekend of up to thirteen miles at eight min miles but am wondering what I should do for the other training session- a 7 min mile 10 k run or hill work? I try to progress my times/ distance every week
your advice would be most welcome.
Thanks for the feedback. Interested why I shouldn't do my long run every week. My idea was to get to 14 miles then go back down to 10 and then build it up again but faster.
Read the comment carefully. Not 'do' a long run but 'race' your long run. Remember it is called a long slow run. And you should either increase speed or distance not both each week.
