I've been running just over a year now. I run every other day, about 2.6 miles and once a week do 10k. The first 10k I did a year ago was 57mins, the second in Sept 52 mins and did one yest at 50 mins (which I'm really proud of). As I run 10k once a week I've thought 'bugger' it and signed up for a half marathon in a month and a half. I've recently run 8 miles and that was alright. What's the best strategy? What pace shld I be aiming for? As my first one I'm gonna take it really easy. Also, anyone help me with regards to getting my 10k to 45 mins without giving up copious amounts of wine and occassional fags??
