Wow! Great improvement
I've not got my records going back that far (got my Garmin a year in to on/off running). As far back as my records go though:
(May 2011) in my first 12 weeks I ran 38 miles at an average pace of 10:02 min/mile (61 km at 6:14 min/km). 10K PB 1:02:40, HM PB 2:06 (PBs from a little earlier to give a guide), resting HR of 70.
(May 2013) in those 12 weeks I ran 156 miles at an average pace of 8:59 min/mile (251 km at 5:30 min/km) 10K PB 44:55, HM PB 1:46 resting HR 51.
Last 12 weeks up until today I've managed 62.3 miles at 8:05 min/mile pace (100 km at 5:00 min/km) - less miles but a fair bit faster, and some time off for illness. HM PB 1:38, resting HR 54.
All in all I'd say a decent improvement and well worth the miles and hours
