For part 1 (How I Became a Faster Runner) - Click here.
In our last post about how I became a faster runner, I ran through (pun intended) my five point plan/different running workouts which helped me go from a runner who struggled to run 1 kilometre without the need to rest to completing my first half marathon in 18 months.
Now I say 18 months because initially I never intended to complete anything more than 10k. My reasoning was that I never wanted to run more than an hour. That made my goal of a sub-60 minute 10k the ultimate running goal for me.
However, (and I'm sure many of you have experienced this too), but when around other runners, especially post-run coffees, you get the itch and next thing you know, you've signed up for half-marathon races left, right, and centre.
