I am trying to achieve longer distance in my runs. Is it best to do one long run per week (and 2 shorter runs) and keep increasing that long run. Or to do 3 slightly longer , and increase the distance of all those runs every week? I have been running (regularly, but not very far for over 3 years) I did do a 7 mile run 2 years ago and have suffered with the outside of my knee (ITB?) ever since. I can really feel the twinge when I go further - but try and do smaller steps and run on the most level ground to keep the pain at bay. Any advice welcome!
Just realised I have put this question in the wrong section - but am not sure how to move it! So do excuse me!
