Finished W8D3 Time OK Distance Not?

Recommended Posts

Ok just finished the last day and very happy about that! However, I am able to do the 30 minutes no problem but only getting 2.5 miles in that time. No stopping, I ran the entire time, guess I am just a slow runner! There are several hills in my normal run which definitely slow me down but hate making excuses. My first 5k is a couple of weeks away so I plan to focus on distance more the next 2 weeks instead of time so much. Does this make sense?

Congrats on finishing!! I've been doing a bit if research on increasing speed and most of what I've read suggests that the best way to increase speed for newer runners is to increase the distances that you run at a steady pace. That way you can push a bit harder on the shorter distance for a race. The runner's world website is great for tips and tricks :)
