Hi - This is my first post here. I'm training for my first half marathon which is in 4 weeks. It's all going well so far. I'm trying to get a bit faster, I had been happy enough plodding along at 11min/mile and not really thinking about it. However the more I run - the more I want to get out of it, so having read about how to increase speed I've started to incorporate some intervals and just generally push myself a bit harder. I did an 11 mile run on Sunday in the time it took me to do a 10mile run the previous Sunday. - Yay. But I certainly felt it for a few hours! Anyway... None of my friends run, and I probably just get on their nerves talking about it. I spend a lot of time deliberating joining a running club, but just not quite got to the point where I feel I want to. So I'm here. Any advice on increasing speed while also increasing mileage for the half marathon - greatly received.
