Running help?

#1
Right, I'm not sure if I can explain this properly but I'll have a go....
So say a few weeks ago, I could do a certain distance when I'm running, now I can do that same distance but in a faster time but when I try to go a further distance at the original pace - I can't do it!
How do I run for longer?! Frustrating me :x

Nope going slower doesn't help because she wont make the run time, if thats what shes trying to do. Build your stamina, try fartlek training.

Wait a minute you don't know what his run time is yet! He could be asking for help running a marathon! He may already be able to do the 1.5 miles in a decent time. More information is required!

I agree with the fartlek training! You could also try basic interval training - jog 400 metres then sprint 100, repeating for a total of 3 miles a time.

By the way slippy its a She, and nope i forgot about that but also fartlek helps build stamina weather your running a marathon or running the 1.5.

Not being sarcastic or anything by the way.

Just a mile!!! What are you a whale? My grandad can do that, I think your just running too fast, sort your pace out, calm down your breathing and it'll be a breeze.

Well if you need information on fartlek then there is a topic on The Training Wing or I can help.

A mile! Go slower, do 1.5 miles but don't time yourself the first few times. Just DO IT and don't stop. Once you can run that distance without stopping and without being completely dead on your feet afterwards, then start timing yourself. If you start timing earlier when you feel seriously knackered after, and you get a rubbish time, you will feel as if all this work you've been putting in was for nothing. As you said, 'baby steps'... but a mile? That's foetal steps!!!!

run/jog at like 9 kmph and do longer runs 9km is an easy steady speed.
