Well I just finished my first Half and posted a time of 1.39 which I am really happy with, to get this time I have had to put a fair few miles in and trained in all weathers over the winter but have to say it was all worth it as the buzz and feel of the day was just great, plymouth half is very well organised with lovely views etc
Hi Jae, I did my first 10 k last month, I set a target time and worked to that time. When do you plan to run your next 10 k, if you have 8 to 10 weeks the research and info I have received is to increase mileage and frequency of runs, build in sprints and do some hill work. I have loosely follow these and I am getting fitter and faster to the point that I will let my time for my next 10k run take care of itself as I know it will a PB,I am new to this running thing
Work hard and it comes
i am really liking the idea of drinking pints and eating pies to run 2.17 marathon, only problems i can foresee would be what type of pint and what type of pie, i think carring a back pack with all this while running a marathon might slow you down a bit, a realistic target would 2.30 to be fair.
will try it out tonight with 3 pints and a packet of crisp, do not want to over do it as i am not used to this type of training !!
Basic weight training should be split into 3 sessions, chest and biceps/ back and triceps / shoulders and core for 3 rd session, allow a day rest in between and I recommend you take a protein supplement or make sure you eat enough protein in your diet, also check various on line site different excersises and always make sure your for is good.
Hope this helps
