My uncle tells me that a few years ago he wanted to become good at running. He tells me he went down the gym hopped on the treadmill and ran for 30 minutes at an 8 km/h pace which obviously is pretty *text deleted**text deleted*. He tells me he went on the treadmill religiously four times a week every single week and every two weeks he would increase the pace by 0.5 km/h but still ran for 30 minutes every time. He tells me eventually he got to 19 km/h pace after about a year which he says means he can run almost 6 miles in 30 minutes! So what i would like to know is this possible. Surely if you could do something pretty simple like that to become really good at running everyone would do it. Or is my uncle talking out of his *text deleted**text deleted*.
