That's good going! Yes I can run after work but have various other things on too, will try and fit more in. My short runs are 2.5 - 3 miles. 3 mile time is coming down to nearly 30 mins or under, but longer runs are slower (so 5 miles is an hour). I am trying to up the longer run mileage each time too, so 6 miles the other week, 6.7 this eve, 7 - 8 next week etc. Last time before the GNR I managed up to 11 and that was fine.
I will try and put it into practice and see how it goes!
I did the GNR a few years ago and this year as only the good memories now remain, I have signed up for the New Forest Half Marathon (going for the location). I am running for charity so just hoping to make it round and raise as much as possible, but I am struggling.....
I am trying to do two short runs ( 2- 3 miles) and a long run a week (upping mileage on this) (though difficult to fit this in). Instead of the runs I have been sometimes doing circuit training or long bike rides.
I am fine with short runs, but now I am on 6 miles + on the longer runs it's begining to hurt! Any advice??
Still going to persevere but it would be good if it got easier.....I did ask a running club if I could join, to get their help, but I was rejected as I run too slowly (12 min miles).
