I first looked at this forum last night and have since found myself reading thread after thread and have been amazed by the support and help runners offer one another...so I am wondering if anyone would have any advice/tips for me!!
I have been ‘running’ for about 6 years now, although I would say I have never taken training as seriously as I could have done. For a variety of reasons apart from in the last 3/4 months over the majority of those 6 years I would only be running 1-3 times a week. I have carried out 6 half marathons and a couple of 10kms so I am far from active on the competitive circuit. During summer of 2010 I organised for myself, brother and Uncle to run/walk between Bristol and Weymouth for charity...and the 65 miles was a very testing experience but one that on the whole I enjoyed.
Now that I am not at Uni, cut back on the amount of football I’m playing my aim for 2011 is to see what exactly I am capable of in regards to running. My half marathon official PB is 1:31:07 (Bath 2010) and on New Year’s day I ran a Marathon on my own using my micoach in 3:12:47...I just wondered if anyone could give me advice in the definite do’s in order to improve upon these times in, in regards to training and types of runs to do (aiming to run 5/6 times a week), nutrition and injury prevention...
Any help would be hugely appreciated!
Happy New Year to all!
