Well, I know squash involves short fast sprints. However I have always been good at cross countries and long distance jogs.
I do roughly 2 runs a week which all vary in length.
Today i ran just over 4 miles in 40 minutes.
I was shattered after it which made me wonder whether it was because I was running faster than I should...
So, in the very near future, I would love to start running in half marathons.
Now, I am only 17 at the moment and havn't run in any competetive races or runs and need tips and help.
I am, what I describe as very fit.
- I play county squash at a high level
- I play in many national tournaments
- I run every so often around the village that I live in
So, I have no idea what to do in my training what sort of time I should be aiming for and an explanation as to the best way to try an run a half marathon.
I would love to hear all different ideas, because I like to mesh together ideas when I do sport...
Hopefully I can make this a good milestone in my life!
