I am your bog standerd 3 stone overweight 11m/m/ 12 m/m plodder and I'm bored of it. I'd really like to get to a 10 m/m but the only time I have achieved this is from training for a marathon but even then I could only keep up 10 m/m for 10 miles hit 20 miles on the 4 hours mark and then the wheels horribly fell off and ended up finishing 5:47. I mention the weight thing becuase it's obviously important to what I can achieve losing weight is difficult for me so I don't want to put my running on hold till I achieve that but would like to move forward. I've just done a half marathon in 2:35 again I held up a 11 m/m till about 8 miles and then the wheels fell of again!... I would like to achieve a sub 60 10K in 6 weeks time? I totally admit to being a training bore as well all I do is run the one speed and hope for the best but the speed work on here seems a bit out of reach for me I really struggle once I go over my comfortable speed of 11 m/m it's very frustrating. Can anyone offer some training advice for my ability and speed? I run 4 times a week usually 4, 5, 4 and a long one on the weekend of 6-10 miles.
