I used to run a lot when I was at School/College, but then stopped. I started running again around June/July this year (before the olympics started, I remember everyone asking after a few weeks if I was only doing it becuase of the olympics lol).
Anyway, I try 3 sessions a week, doing a few miles each time. However, I've not done anything for a month until earlier this week (Tuesday 23rd to be exact) due to a light ankle sprain.
I've entered my first race which is the Bolsover 10k on December 16th. When I went for a run on Tuesday I felt unfit, and the same again yesterday.
I really need to get a constant run as I find I run a mile quick, and then slow down. I don't seem to be able to run "slow enough" to maintain a constant pace.
Also, I'd like to be doing around 15-20miles a week before the year is out. Is this reasonable, and would anyone be kind enough to give me an idea of a plan? I was thinking of something like 3/7/5 miles routes.
