Increasing speed week 8

Post by Queeny » Sun Nov 27, 2011 9:53 pm

Hi, I've just begun week 8 and now thinking about the end of the plan.

Currently my running speed is approx 7:30 mins/per k and I need to aim to reduce this to 6:00 for week 9 to meet the 5k goal in 30 mins.

I'm finding increasing speed, is increably hard, so much so I'm wondering if I'm more a distance runner than a speeder.

I really want to move on to running Bridge to 10k soon and not get too hung up on speed but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem and how did you overcome this?

Nb: Im a roadrunner in the UK - I don't think this recent windy weather is helping lol
