Please can someone help with some advice, i did my first ever half marathon last year in Bath, i was happy with 1hr 47 mins, i also did the Bristol 13 miler 6 months later, and again achieved 1hr 47 mins - i actually beat my first time by around 12 seconds - my question is, HOW DO I IMPROVE ON THIS? - i would love to do another one and finish at least 5 minutes quicker, rather than shaving 12 seconds off each time , but i can`t see how i can!, The trouble is that i seem to have just one speed which is comfortable to me, i run the same for the last few miles as i do for the first few- so i am very consistant. But how do i make the next step up? (without killing myself). Thanks for reading.

Well you probably need to do some hill and speed sessions and do long slow runs exceding 13.1 miles..ie 15miles...to build up stamina and speed.

Are you a club member?
