Does Edinburgh provide a training schedule?
I’d follow that or I know London does one.

Add 15min each week to your longest run and don’t go beyond 22k. It takes too much out of you to add additional miles. Sadly, you cannot train for that last 10k. It’s just sheer bloodymindedness.

Good luck. Look forward to reading about your progress

Cheers for the replies and advice.

Ran 10.5 miles yesterday in rain, sleet, hail and wind in just under an hour and a half so was pretty pleased with that as a starting point. Felt pretty good just a slight bit of stiffness this morning.

I’ve been having a little look online at reviews and what not for watches suited to running, ideally one that I can play Spotify through or download playlists from Spotify on to. It seems that apple watches aren’t the best for doing this as they don’t support Spotify. Anyone got any ideas or experiences with these?

It's very good mate,clocks all your runs and times gives you a bit of a goal to aim for as well.

I'm struggling with injuries. I was never really into running ever. I played loads of sports and probably abused my body when I was younger and fit. I smoked, drank and ate anything I wanted when I was playing footy and GAA. But I was good enough to get away with it. I gave it all in training so I kept my fitness good enough to play at a high standard. I also done a bit of boxing and dabbled in a few sports when I was young until I broke my wrist, so that had me always at a high level of fitness.

Then about a year or 18 months ago I started to enjoy running and tried to get into it properly. But I've had lots of injuries. Medial knee ligament, groin strains, very sore back and now peronneal tendonitis. I think it's payback from my body to me. I'm only 33 but it feels like I can't catch a break. I need to lose about two stone, but every time I feel a bit of fitness coming back and I push myself to get my times down I pick up an injury.


At the moment I'm trying to get back into it slowly, but I'm stupidly bloody competitive so I find it hard to hold back. But I know if I can take it easy for the next couple of months I could be ok to pick the pace up.

Last year I rushed myself to get running a 10k. I ran 10k to see where I was, but ran it too soon and got injured. It's been stop/start since then.

I'm aiming for a 10k at the start of May. So hopefully I get there.


Dickie when is your 10k?

10 weeks today until the marathon. Up to roughly 14 and a half mile. Legs aren’t feeling too bad except my hips which take a day or 2 to recover. Can’t wait for this weather to turn, ran that yesterday in wind and snow which killed me for the last mile.

Don't become obsessed with the schedule, better to miss a few runs than turn a niggle into an injury.
Long Slow Run and Mid week middle distance run are the most important, anything else is a bonus.
Don't run too quickly, as you start to get fitter, the urge will be to push it on. Don't. Run slow runs slowly and quick runs quickly. The slow runs are designed to help with endurance and not tire you out.

Remember to enjoy it.

Your post has stuck in my mind the last few weeks.

I'm getting out regular and not pushing myself too hard (I'm finding it tough not to push though).

I've done 4k, 5k, 4k.
Then 4k, 5.5k,4k.
Then 4.5k, 6k, 4k.


That's my last 3 weeks running. I got a niggle from the 6k, one kilometre of it was up a very steep hill so I think it was from that. I rested, whereas before I would have been back out. Missing a few days is annoying but a couple of months missed would leave me gutted.

How's your times?


I was involved in a car accident which knackered my back (Still not great) in January so did not run until this week, I think not running in 2 months helped me recover from the shin splints. I have managed to do 4k in 30 minutes this week which I am happy with after a 2 month break. I don't know whether to increase the pace over 30 minutes or run longer at the same pace?

Goal is to be able to do 10k under 60 minutes in the next few months.

Great going mate after the car accident.
As for advice, I think others are better placed to give it here.

But I will say with doing one longer slower run in the week, I notice my 4k times improving and have more in the tank in the last kilometre.

I just checked my workouts on map my run. 4 weeks ago I done 4k in 27.08

The other day I done it in 23.49, so improving my stamina with the longer runs seems to be helping.

I'll do 4km,6km,4km this week again and the following week I'll increase them all by half a kilometre.



My goal is the same as yours to do a 10k in under an hour. I got injured last April and my last timed 5km at a Parkrun was 28.17. I was only back running about 5 weeks. My initial parkrun was 32.30 so I was making great progress. The local 10k was coming up and I thought I'd be able to get under an hour. But I rushed in and ran a 10k to see what my time would be and ended up with peronneal tendonitis.

If you have a local Parkrun you should give it a go. They are great.

Knocking close to 4 minutes off your 4k is great going mate in a few weeks. My first goal is 5k in under 30 minutes but I have read running longer at a lower pace helps towards quickening times (Which echos what you said).

Do you run back to back days, I haven't done that yet as my legs can be sore the day after?
