Hi, I've been running for many years now - averaging 3 runs a week adding up to 15-20 miles. Have taken part in half marathons and my last race was London marathon in April.
Since June, I've hardly run at all - due to illness. Averaging 1 or 2 runs a week and not even reaching double figures. Average pace 10 min mile. My last longest run was 6 miles three weeks ago. I'm ready to start building up the mileage again but can't remember the golden rule..... Is it not to increase by more than 10% a week or 2 miles a week? I don't want to overdo it but am hoping to do a half marathon next Spring.
Any tips anyone?
