I've got a half marathon coming up I'm hoping to do a good time for.
I've done a few HM's before, PB being about 1:47. Over the last couple of months I've built up to doing regular runs every other day'ish of around 7 - 10 miles, steady pace, probably about 30 - 40 miles a week. I'm running around 8min miles.
I would like to up my training and think I should probably do more interval type work (I don't do much at all at the moment).
I'm happy to put in up to 2 hours a day, 6 or 7 days a week. What would be the best way to make good progress from here? Most programs have some very short days or 2 rest days. I'm wondering even if I do intervals, would I get more benefits form doing additional steady running even if just at an easy pace? I feel as though if I can commit 2 hours trasining a day, then I want to make the most of it, but not sure if it's not giving my muscles enough time to recover or if it's mixing things up enough!
Any advice appreciated.
