I graduated C25K January '13 and gradually built up the mileage so was running 10K relatively comfortably by mid June. Then came the heat of summer, follow hot on its heels by a foot injury (Plantar Fasciitis) in October, both of which have curtailed my mileage since. I am now back running 5K+ 3/4 times per week and the foot, although not yet 100%, is coping fine and continues to improve.
Throughout all this time, I have had my local half marathon (6th April) on my radar - my training for which should be starting this week. I have no expectations of time, but would just aim to get round the course. However, in order to get my distances up I would need to increase my running by aprox one mile per week, which obviously smashes the 10% rule.
Has anyone else embarked on a 12 week training plan from this starting point? is this reckless - am I making a huge mistake? I would value your opinions
