To improve your running, include a variety of different sessions to your training schedule – tempo runs, Fartlek, Interval and Long Runs are all great ways to increase your endurance and speed.
Tempo Run – Start a 45 minute run with 15 minutes of easy running, 20 minutes at a medium pace and then a 10 minute easy run to the finish.
Fartlek – Is a mix of fast pace running followed by an easy pace run. By adding the Fartlek technique to your sessions, you will develop your aerobic and anaerobic energy systems which are really important when trying to increase your pace.
Long runs – These are the largest runs in your training schedule and are to be completed at an easy, steady pace.

"When choosing a training schedule, make sure you try to stick to it as closely as you can. Over training can lead to burn out and overuse injuries so make sure you include some rest days." - Lindy
