I was running regularly though was injured new years day after a 5k. I took a rest from running and rehabiliting myself now. I rang 4K yesterday and 5 K today in around 26 minutes. In the past I have run a 1.44 half marathon. I am due to be doing a half marathon in around 3 weeks was hoping I can build up to 9 to 10 miles without any discomfort in my foot. The half marathon is in around 3 weeks time. Thinking I should aim to run in 2 hrs to 2 and 1/4 hours to avoid injuring myself again but just getting round.
Any ideas regarding training schedule would be welcomed.
I have run regularly but did a park run on new years day. The next day I had severe foot pain. This has remained though not as severe and there is a pain at the back of my heel. Due to work commitments I have to wait a week before I see a doctor. I have taken Ibupfrofen on a couple of occasions which have helped the pain but do not to be reliant on this so trying to cope without. I have been waking up in the night with a painful foot and it is also painful and a lot stiffer for around 1 and 1/2 hours when I wake up in the morning. I am feeling a bit despondant now as due to do a half marathon in 3 weeks which looks like I will have to pull out of as am having pain walking.
I run about 47 minutes 10K , and around 1.44 for half marathons. At the time of my marathon.. I think I ran the half in around 1.52 and ended up running 3.54. I would say build up your miles, I did not do massive milage but ran around 6 or 7 , 18 mile runs in about 3 hours. I also did a 20 mile road race which was flat around 2 months prior to my marathon to give me confidence. Do not go off too fast as well as many will make that mistake and be shatterred by 16 miles or so.
Interesting post, have carried out 10 park runs in London with a PB of 23 minutes. I am trying to buid up stamina to go for a PB and ran 14 miles yesterday though took me around 2 and 1/4 hours so not going full pelt. I am also trying to do interval training with 5K runs interspersed with sprints.
I do not know Lanzarote but was in Fuerteventura last year. I tend to go out early morning or later on in the day when it was not as hot and run around 30 to 40 minutes on way round a beach before heading back to my hotel. Was good as always tend to run the same routes at home and nothing beats looking at the sea when running.
