I'm new to the forum but feeling a bit downhearted about my "speed" at moment so looking for some advice/support please.
Started running 2005 and did a half marathon in March 06 which I found a real challenge. Took me 2h 50 and they had opened the road as I was 3rd from last! Felt I'd let myself down, espec as training partner finished in 2 hr 25.
Anyway, another baby since then and started up again 9 weeks ago. Feel I'm running a bit quicker but seem stuck at 12 min miles. Did our local park run 5K on sat in 36.36 which I should have expected but again 2nd from last and starting to wonder whether I shouldn't bother with the races. It just feels as if my legs won't go any faster. Stupidly I am entered for the same half in March....don't know what to do.
Help please...has anyone improved from such a baseline?
