I'm training for an ultra in August. Previous races included 1 hill race which i came last and stopped my running for a wee while. I've never ever done a 5k 10k half marathon or marathon race however i am up to 20 plus miles on my long slow run days so cover these distances with ease. My dilemma I was talking to a runner who specialises in 5k to half marathons who laughed at my pace which is between 11.5 - 13.5 min/mile. I am not fast and try as i may i cant get my speed up and get my mins/mile down. I have looked at all aspects of my training and cant get faster. i train on trails which incorporates hills and uneven terrain. But the other night I did a 10 k on the road and did in a shockingly slow at 1hr 08 ins but i enjoyed it! anybody any ideas?
