I started running on a treadmill in December last year and then stopped in March. I was only running for about half an hour 3-4 times a week but I got bored with the treadmill and since I hate running outside on my own and didn't have anyone else to run with, I stopped. Yes I could kick myself!
Anyway, I have restarted this week (on the treadmill again) and decided to just keep going for as long as I felt comfortable - yes I know that breaks every beginners running rule in the book, but I managed 40 mins on Thursday night and an hour today.
The thing is I was going sooo slowly it's almost an insult to call it jogging. I only did 7.5k in the hour.
So, my question to all of you is should I continue to work on my stamina or try and improve my speed?
I would like to do a couple of 5k races and maybe a 10 before Christmas but my lack of speed is putting me off.
