Hi all, I wonder if you can help me, I have been running now for 5 months and I am 47 years old, 12 1/2 stone (going down slowly), I have read so many articles and schedules I am now confused!
The thing I would like to know is:- what in your opinion is the best number of days to run?. Is it best to run 4 days or keeping the weekly milage the same spread the runs over 6 days?
At the moment I am running =
Mon 5 miles,
Wed 7 miles,
Fri 5 miles,
Sun 4 miles.
I am increasing my milage by 1 mile a week on one of the runs.
I am not training for an actual race but, I would love to do a half marathon sometime in the future.
Hope you can help,
