just started running , i'm not including Xcountry for my school team as i was some 20 years younger lol. i can run 5k in 31 mins, quite pleased after 2 weeks into jan. i am generally fit and healthy , eat well, cycle and walk alot, BMI is 21. i really want to do 1/2 marathon but its in march and not sure enough time to train well for it, i don't want super speedy time but also not too slow. i am am jogging 5k 3 times a week and doing a longer run, i managed 8.5 in 60 mins. my plan is to increase my time of longer run by 15 mins each week rather than focus on a distance , worked out distance after i ran it, but it was more of a jogging pace i guess.
is it better to aim for 10 k first then 1/2 maybe in autumn?
any opinions/ help appreciated x
