Hi there all.
I have just graduated and am happy with my stamina for the moment but I would like to increase my speed (pace is currently around 10 minutes per km.)
Shub69 and I have been discussing this and I wondered if anyone else had any ideas. (Bearing in mind that I am 5 stone overweight and 55 years old LOL - maybe more 🐘 than 🐌.)
This was my plan -
* continue running - 2x or 3x per week
* aim for 2x 35 minute runs & 1x5k per week, a Parkrun if I can make it.
* gym 2x per week, some strength training plus possibly one of the runs on a treadmill
* after 2 months, start aiming to reduce my Parkrun time. Not before. Of course it *might* happen of its own accord - yesterday was only my 3rd ever 5k so it would be natural to improve a bit, even if I'm not concentrating on improvement.
I would be grateful for any ideas. I am definitely not ready for bridgeto10k!
