Monica: very first off, fantastic task on your very first half marathon!!! That is something to be extremely pleased of ?

The finest method to boost speed is with speed work, however you can likewise much better your half marathon time with building a stronger training base. After my very first marathon I asked lots of professional runners exactly how I might do much better next time as well as of program speed work was suggested, however lots of people likewise asked about my base – exactly how lots of miles a week I was running, what were my longs runs, etc.

I believe making sure your body is completely able to deal with as well as dominate a specific distance likewise assists with your time. working on both base as well as speed with nearly definitely assurance a pr ?

I’m going to begin integrating speed work in my training next week as well as I’ll be publishing a lot more details as I go along, to ensure that may assist provide you an concept of what speed work is like. great luck!
