I have just completed the C25K programme and I would like to improve my pace for the Great North 5k, which I'm doing on the 14th of September. I realise that, over the next few weeks, just focusing on comfortably doing 5k will be my main focus, but I would like to speed up too!
Based on my last four runs (just started using the Nike+ app), my average pace is 11'27"/mi, with one run being a treadmill run. I would say my most comfortable pace is between 11:50 and 12:10. I've stated on my sign up to the Great North 5k that I expect to run the 5k in 30-35 minutes.
Does anyone have any tips on improving speed in 4 weeks? Endurance is my priority, but it would be fun to try to improve my speed as well as making sure I cross that finish line!
