I have been running regularly for 6 months - I now run 5 times a week and cover around 20 miles with two longish runs of 6 miles and three 3 mile runs. I am at least 2 stone over-weight and probably need to lose 3 to get to my ideal. So, should I be doing 5 easy paced (according to the McMillan formula) runs to burn fat and train when I am closer to my goal weight? Or, mix it up a bit with easy paced long runs and tempo/fartlek/hills as well?
I have run my first race - a multi-terrain 4.5 miler - that I will complete 3 more times this year and aim to run three other 10k races spread throughout the season.
Your ideas will be most welcome.
