i've been running on & off for 18 months - 2 years. I've had a few run less months due to injury / sheer laziness during that time. While running i've been sticking to 3 runs per week mostly 5k distances with the odd longer run but the furthest i've done is a 10k last year.
I restarted running in January this year after a 3 month break due to several injuries and i've worked my way back up to running 5 miles this week which is great. However somewhere in a moment of madness i agreed to run my first ever half marathon this September.
I've found myself a training program which is borderline terrifying to look at given that the thought of running 13 miles makes me feel a bit ill. However joking aside i've been making good progress and injurys allowing ( touch wood) it looks achievable especially given i already regularly walk further than 13 miles.
However i still count myself as a novice (not a real runner) and i know there are many people on here far more experienced than me and i'd be very greatful if any of you wonderful people can offer me any advice/tips etc as i want to do everything i can to achieve my goal of running the full distance while trying to stay injury free getting there.
thanks for any help you can offer
