I've recently clocked an 84:41 half marathon after a tough years training. My initial focus was on 10K races in the early part of the year where I clocked a 38:40 and then over the summer I switched to a local 5K series where I clocked 18.22! I stepped up my HM training in late summer in preparation for the Leicester HM. Realistically I'm wondering if I follow a similar part from early 2014 going from 5Ks and training up to HM in autumn time if I train well and eat clean can I get close to 80 minutes or is that too much of a jump in such a short space of time?
I'm running anywhere from 80 miles to 130 miles a month mixing fast runs, intervals, hills and tempos up with some longer runs but my intention is to start with lighter training at the start of the year building a base. I'll throw in crossfit and kettlebells plus some strength and core sessions thrown in! Concentrate on fast work and track sessions and then build my pace endurance up over the year.
Any advice from runners out there would be most welcome
