No going back now! I've entered a local race at end of April to keep me focused -Newchurch Nine (9K)
I'm no speed merchant, but would like to run the whole distance, that's my goal.
Currently do parkrun every Sat, and running club on a Tuesday.
Last night the route we did was a hilly one, and just over 7K. That's the maximum distance I've run so far.
Is there a distance less than 9K that once I could manage comfortably I would still have enough 'left in the tank' to complete 9K?
I can see it's something that must vary between people, but I thought I'd read that you should increase distances by 10%. Does that mean if I know I can run 8K, I should be able to pull 9K out the bag on the day?
Or is it just better to make sure can run 9K before! 😜
Hope this makes some sense!
