I've recently started slowly building up my running again after being injured on and off (shin splints.) for about a year, and I really want to make some progress in my 5k times and stamina.
My PB is approx 22:35 although this was a couple of years ago-this was annoyingly my first ever parkrun which I didn't train at all for. My recent parkrun times have been over the 26 minute mark, although I did a 5k race on sunday and got a sneaky 23:40 out of the blue, which I was pretty happy with! I'd love to beat my elusive PB in the near future but I'm aware I need to take it slowly so that my injuries don't creep back.
I'm 17 and have been a member of a running club before, but quit because I couldn't fit it in around school work. At the moment I'm running a couple of 20 minute runs every week. I'd love some advice about training/how to build things up steadily and how to increase stamina and fitness! Thanks and apols for the essay
