Hi, I've been running for a few months now, after a break of a few years. I do parkrun every week (PB 35:48) and treadmill for 30 mins twice a week at the gym. I'd really like to head for a) a much faster time for 5k and b) trying out a 10k.
Any suggestions on how best to speed up for 5k? and what sort of time should I be able to do before taking part in 10k events? It's really irritating me that I used to do under 30 mins for 5k and just don't seem to get close since I restarted (although I've taken nearly 4 mins off my time since I started parkrun in October!).
I'm thinking that to do better at 5k I need to train at longer distances and my endurance will increase - is that right? I can now run the whole 5k, at least, without walking breaks.
Advice gratefully received
