Hi, I'm a fitness freak, but still very much a newbie as far as running is concerned. I haven't followed any training plans, but just started running over the last few weeks.
I pushed myself today and managed five miles in just over forty minutes. Previously I had been running for just twenty minutes. I don't feel tired or breathless now, but do get some mild pain in my legs.
Is there a standard approach when it comes to increasing distance, or am I doing too much too soon? I'm really in love with this whole running thing, so don't want to do any damage
