I would like to finish somewhere in the 2.2-2.5hr mark for my HM in May, but I need to focus on speeding up a little bit to make that happen. I used to have a quicker pace on the short runs in C25 and C210, but I had distance endurance problems, so I slowed my pace intentionally. That helped me get the distances, but I’ve never been able to recover my pace again. Been afraid of injury to push really hard. Just wondering if there are things I can work into my training to help pick up my speed. I’ve been trying the odd shorter run at quicker paces, but I’ve not tried it on the longer runs yet, afraid I will burn out or get injured. I run alone and this group is my only source for training knowledge. This is my first HM too. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
