Well, I graduated about three weeks ago and now the initial sense of achievement had begun to ware off - I'm struggling not to feel really discouraged by my lack of speed It doesn't help that a couple of friends have graduates since and are merrily sailing along doing OVER 5K in 30 min - leaving me feeling a little disappointed with my 36:32 pb!
So the question is - Is there any hope that I will speed up and how long is it likely to take? I'm now doing one speed/ interval session a week and plan to increase distance on my weekend run. Will this plan help or am I just destined to be slow?
Could really do with a motivational pep talk from any ex-snails out there who have sped up with time/practice - before this downer makes me give up altogether!
