Hi, it’s been a while since I last posted.
Stupidly I got carried away and signed up for a half marathon in May! At the time I had just done my first 10k and was looking for the next challenge. We had just had a new baby and with Xmas I had a little break. Once the new year started I worked out a training plan that would have me running 3 times a week, one short faster 5k, one slightly longer recovery run and one long run every week. I had it worked out that by increasing my long run by 1k every week I would build it up slowly to doing my longest run 4 weeks before the half marathon, then just tail it off a bit in the last few weeks.
I hurt my back and had to have a break, I’ve been advised to take it easy now and don’t push it god the next 2 weeks and get back to where I left. Which was 11k.
My question now is what do I do then? I’ve got 10 weeks to race day. Barring any more setbacks do
1. Increase my long every week by 2k to get to race distance by 4 weeks before and tail off again as planned.
2. Just increase by 1k every week and go right to race day leaving myself short and no tailing off.
Or something totally different.
It’s all so confusing.
Sorry for boring post:)!!!
