I have previously been running approx 20kms per week (4x5kms)
I have just started a 10km running plan by Hal Higdon and see that pover the next 8 weeks, I wont get near 20kms a week.
Now I have heard tht Hal knows what he is talking about, but maybe this is just the wrong program for me. I m not entirely sure if reducing my kms is good or not. Especially as I hoped to be increasing my distance, hence the shift to 10km running (ok - it is a long distance by my books!)

If you have been doing your weekly runs regularly and with no problems you are probably ready for his intermediate program. If you find that too demanding at this stage, make up your own program in times/distances between the novice and intermediate programs so they are a bit above your current regime but don't stress you out.

Most novice programs assume a very low base is being started from. This is sensible from a health persepctive, but can frustrate runners such as yourself with a few miles under their belt.
