» 130 kilometers in July and no progress

I ran about 130 km in July, which is more than I ever did in a month. I ran 14 times betwen around 9 km, except one long run of 20 km. I am frustrated because despite the unsually high frequency of running for me, I saw neither my speed nor my endurance get better. I am preparing for my first half marathon (less 1 km, the 20 km de Paris in october). My friends runners tell me to stop spending my time doing the same type of session and do interval running, which is what I am starting to do this month. I feel good even though there is no visible progress, needless to say I don’t touch a fucking cigarette anymore.
