At running club this morning it was mentioned that I should have a go Hastings Half next March. I've only been running since Easter and had no desire to run a long way - in fact I only came to couch25k to train for the Army 1.5 mile run!
I feel my running is progressing well and although I've not run a nonstop 10k yet feel that I have it in me - hopefully under the 60min mark if the route is flat 😂.
My question really is about training for it. I love running with my club (10k with some stops and walking. The running is usually around 545 a km) and in parkrun with my son (currently around 630 a km) and am worried about fitting a ready made training plan around these activities.
I've had a look online and a lot of the plans seem to require you to do different distances at different tempos throughout the week which just won't be realistic for me. Is it possible to get comfortable with the distance and have enough miles in your legs by going about the training in a more "freestyle" manner?
