I try to run at least 3 times a week ,one long run about 7 miles and two shorter ones.I dont do mornings as I am SO not a morning person and find speaking difficult let alone running at that time .I have 4 children ...they are not tiny 19 ,15,13 ,11 but still demanding and I work. I do go to the gym twice a week and do some weights too ...keeps the bingo wings at bay .I would love to train more often for longer but life gets in the way.Would love to run a marathon but all that training!!!!!??? Would interval training or fartlek be better as it is more intense or is there no substitute for kranking out the miles.
Also after a long run next morning I feel like a large truck has run me over...keep putting down to old age and have a rest day .
I do try to listen to my body but it keeps saying stay home and eat biscuits so I ignore it more often than not.
Got a 10k in hyde park july so training for that want to do it in an hour...forever an optimist me.
Maybe should accept that as a lady of a certin age running the streets of west london is ungignified and should take up knitting or bowles ha ha
