I took up running for fun a couple of years ago , recently I ran a half marathon at 1 hour and 45 minuites.However  I now want to improve my fitness level I am at a level 7 (roughly) , I would have thought marathon training would be an ideal way to improve this. - please share your thoughts on this and any recommendations or suggestions ?

Also I was just using Smart Coach and got a bit confused , I was trying to work out the speed at which was reccomended - For example it was recommended that I 6 miles on a Monday and to  run at a pace of  9 miles at 9:17 - What  pace/speed/time ratio is this suggesting ? 

 Thanks for your support image
