I ran my first half marathon (Silverstone) in March 2012 @ 2:09 hrs. I was hoping to crack it under 2 hrs, but as you see I couldn't. I have now another one coming up in October. I would like to do it under 2, if possible.
I have been training 3 dpw (some times 4) clocking around 14 - 18 miles per week, for last 6-7 weeks.I'm not noticing any improvement in my speed or stamina.. on the contrary I'm finding it a bit of struggle even to do above mileage. I don't drink much (10-12 units a week, not every week) and eat healthy, other than work, which involves a bit of travelling (& usual stress), I can't see any reason for me why there should be any improvement. I'm male & 42.
Any suggestion or advise will be greatly received.
