After recently losing some weight (50lbs - I'm now 104lbs, 5ft 1), I decided to get back into running and hopefully improve my fitness. Today I managed to run over 6km for the first time (6.2km) and although I'm knackered I'm so happy! Being so short, I often find it difficult to keep up with the pace of other, taller runners and I was just wondering are there any other shorter females (under 5ft 4) that have this problem? Do you have any tips for building up to a faster pace? I try not to feel demotivated but I'm just wondering what's a realistic pace goal that others have achieved? Currently I run at a pace of about 7.00-7.20minutes per km.
