Hello everyone, after returning to running after a considerable layoff i'm keen to get some advice/management of expectations!
I've been back at it for a few weeks now and am currently managing the following:
Sunday: 40 min steady (6min/km)
Tuesday: 60 min easy (7:00-7:30/km)
Weds: 40 mins with some tempo periods
Friday: 75 mins easy (7:00-7:30/km)
I'm 42 years old and would love to be able to maintain 7:30 min miles for my longer runs, as my final goal. Just wondering how possible this is, and in what sort of timeframe. Also, does the above schedule look sensible? I'm keen to build my endurance but don't want to go much longer on my long run as want to maintain some decent upper body muscle/strength.
Also, I currently live in the middle east so am training in temps around 35-40 degrees, so not sure how much that affects pace....
Thanks in advance!
