It really greatly depends on what you want to get out of your running. And it will involve a mixture :-)

Someone with some smarts will be along shortly, no doubt...

With a 1:40 half mara PB, whatever you used to do is fine.

Running has not changed... It's still lots of uninformed opinion dressed up as science!!

And it very much depends on where you are running-wise at the moment. Assuming you have a bit of base fitness, 3-4 times a week easy going to start?

If you don't have time for lots of running then do whatever you want. If you're going to do lots of running, then mostly slow so you can handle the load, with some faster stuff when you're ready for it.

Got something to say?
