I started running earlier on this year to get fit and take part in Tesco race for life. Since then I have kept it up - yes I have got the bug! - and have entered both the Swansea 10k in 2 weeks and also the Cardiff Half marathon in 5 weeks time. I have been following a learn to run half marathon training app on my phone and am currently up to the stage of running 30minutes x2 and then 40minutes with 3 minute walks in between - the futhest I have run so far in 1 day is 9.5 miles. Have also been tackling hills because they are everywhere where I live!
Just wanted some advice really as I am a bit worried about the half - I currently only use water on my runs and am wondering if I should now start trying energy drinks/ gels/ lucozade tablets so I know what works before the big day but don't know where to start.
Also I have so far only been conscentrating on running for a certain amount of time rather than a distance so I would also like to improve my speed but not sure how to go about it.
