I'm a very new runner, having only started in January this year. But, have got up to a half marathon in just over two hours. However, I have just taken up trail running and my speed has dropped by about 1 mph, is this normal? At the moment I feel that I just want to be careful and not fall into a rabbit hole, but at the same time I want to keep on pushing myself to improve. Any tips?
I started running in January thus year, and after a little break for a couple of months when i injured my leg, I have really got into my running recently. I have recently increased my distance and tried to work out a good pace over long distances. This week I have managed to do 10 miles in about 1 hour 45, but towards the end of my run I am really really exhaused. The only trouble is is that I would love to do a marathon next year. Any tips on how I can train and improve my distance? Thanks
