Topic - Upping the distance

pepperpot - on 04 Dec 2012
I've been running local tracks and trails three times a week for the past 5ish weeks. Each run has been 30 minutes at a fairly constant easy (60-70% Heartrate Reserve), and its been very satisfying to see the mileage and pace gradually increase as I've got fitter.

I want to continue taking things steady and just work on endurance, so I'm planning to increase the duration over the next 6-8 weeks by 10% each week with a rest week part way through. Now, here's the question...

Is it best to increase each run so that they're all more or less equal each week, so 30-30-30 then 30-30-40, then 30-40-40. Or do I increase just one so that it's 30-30-40, 30-30-50 and so on...
