As some background im 32 and joined a running club about 8 weeks ago. Before then I was doing the odd 5k but generally short runs in the gym as part of cross fitness. Im 6' and ~73kg. Currently ive been running one 8mile on Tuesdays for the last 6 weeks and then one other 5/10k run on the weekend for the last 2 weeks.
2 weeks ago I did a hilly half marathon in 1:37 and then I did a competition 10k on Sunday and came in at 40:11 in terrible conditions (lots of rain). My next step is where do I go from here? My current plan with the running club is:
Tuesday: 8/10mile run
Thursday: Track/ Hill session, alternate weeks
Sunday: 8mile run
This starts tonight. Is it enough and should i fit in some strength work in the gym (benchpress)? And maybe cross training (swimming) on a Sat? Lots of questions and detail but hopefully someone can provide advice! I havent really trained hard but have got a 40min 10k and would like to get this down to at least 37min (6min/mile pace) and also have time to put in the effort.
