Firstly some background,I am a 42 year old male with a pretty unhealthy diet,6'2,weigh 15.5st and haven't done any real exercise since leaving school 25 years ago.
A few months ago I decided it was time to get a little fitter,went the gym for the first time Feb 28th and liked running the best so thought I would attempt to see how far I could go ,so entered the Great Manchester Run for yesterday as an incentive to keep going.
Training was going pretty good until I picked up a calf injury,which stopped me running for about 3 weeks so really I have only had about 6 weeks of training and can only go 2/3 times a week due to the hours I work.
I completed it in 57:18 which I was made up with as a couple of months ago I wouldn't have dreamed of that.
So after all that waffle my question is,what is the best way for me to improve that time and what is realistic by September?
I would have thought with so little previous that I would have a lot of potential improvement yet,any advice would be appreciated.
