Hi everyone, quite enjoying this whole running thing now. I started 2 weeks a go, the main reason I started was to lose a few pounds (I'm not over weight but I could do with losing a few) and get fit basically because I was really really unfit and so far I've enjoyed it. At the moment I'm only going 1.66 miles, I know it isn't much at all to nearly all of you but to me at the moment it's quite good, me and my mate are now stopping at the mile mark for about a minute then going again for a bit. Every time we run we are pushing ourselves to go a bit further, we have ran 6 times now and each time we are going about .3 of a mile further, is pushing yourself to go further each time the right thing to do? I'm off for a run tomorrow and I'll be aiming to do just under 2 mile or maybe hit the 2 mile mark. I go running three times a week.
Basically I've set myself a target, I want to be running about 3.5 mile by the end of July, you lot are the experts, can you give any tips on how to improve and last longer?
Thanks for any help! Cheers.
