One year to the day I started running! Pretty pleased with my performance, ran a marathon in October (my first) and have ran 850km in the year gone. |
My aim is to run the marathon again without needing to stop (I would stop every 5km for about 3 minutes, walking, and then resume running). Here's where I need your advice. Presently my training regime is to do a long run each weekend with one, maybe two (but usually one) shorter run mid week.
My long run is around 22km but aiming to each week add a little, last week was 25km (at about a 5 minute KM). My short run would be about 8 to 10km.
Is that the right approach or should I do a lot more shorter runs instead? I find that after about 23km it gets harder and slower to ramp up but was wondering do I merely persevere or is my approach off?
