Hope everyone gets plenty of PBs next year!
Everyone is different but building up slowly to avoid injury is wise. Also different routes and distances to keep you interested. Make sure you get plenty of hills into your training as well. After coming back from injury I've been doing comfortable 10k runs and planned to build up by a mile or two each month on my longer runs so I'm ready for Sunderland Half in May.Got the great north run this year, bailed on it last year because I did no training at all what with having a very unwell parent and grief later that year so really wasn’t in the mood.. but this year I’m gonna bust a gut and rack up the miles.. want to be Half Marathon ready way in advance.. and do plenty 10ks etc as small runs
Anyone got any decent plans they follow, or is it just a case of racking up the miles
Faster than everyone sat on the couchI tend to stick around 5k and on the 10th December I did it in 28.56 mins, slow to some, but the fact I did sub 30 mins was a massive boost for me.
Big leap in times. Well done.Roll on to today and I did my first park run at Chester-le-street, doing it with my 70 yr old dad and my mate. Today I did it in 26.40 mins, so I'm buzzing haha.
Yeah, have talked myself out of it the last two years, think might be perfect end to my running year is like 5-6 weeks after York and their events always well organised. Probably going to join North East Marathon Club and do a bunch of their events as well have done a few of the winter wonderlands in the past and again reasonably well organised and small fields so can turn up and run which I prefer.Trail Outlaws in November?
