Most of you know by now that I've had quite a set back in my running due to a virus before Christmas, I'm a bit cross that it seems to have robbed me of all the meagre progress I had made in speed terms. So, what I want to do now is just forget about speed and concentrate on distance. My question is this - how far is reasonable to run each week? Before my virus I was up to about 32 KM per week, 4 runs, a long one, some intervals, a 5KM etc...Now I'd quite like for all my runs to be, say, 7KM plus, keeping the speed down (yesterdays 9 KM averaged about 7 min 50) and taking walk breaks if necessary. Is this reasonable? Safe? I graduated about 18 months ago.
