I am training for my third London Marathon. I am not fast and my first two times were 5:16 and 5:02. I have run quite a few half marathons with a PB of 1:56. I am desperate to get under 5 hours as at 54 i am not getting any younger. I am told that interval training will help my times but i am unsure how to approach the training. Any advice please
I think you're better off concentrating on longer runs than fannying about with intervals.
However bear in mind that the user Screamapillar said that my opinions are next to useless as I haven't been around running long enough (the exact criteria for what constitutes an acceptable period though has not been revealed), so take my advice with a pinch of salt.
