I have been running for a little while now (3 months or so). I run 3 times a week and have slowly built up my distance and I am currently at 3.7 miles. Each time I have increased my loop I have felt ready for it, but now trying to do the 4 mile mark seems beyond me still. I have been doing my 3.7 for a couple of weeks now. should I just keep doing it until it feels a comfortable run? Or should I force the extra 0.3 even though I am done ion when I get back and the idea of more is killer!
Its driving me mad because I want to do it, I want to get back to my running form from younger when I used race 5-6 mile races for the county and do half marathons now and again. I dont want to jon a running club again though, but the encouragement from fellow runners would be helpful.
So how do you build up the miles? Should I continue down this path until I feel comfortable?
