Half marathon training update:
It's simply not happening. I can't tell you how gutted I am. I am actually quite tearful and don't know what to say. I am trying hard to be patient and let my muscle recover. I am trying to do other stuff instead but it's not the same.
I did a 30 minute run yesterday after a weeks rest from running. It was not great but not a disaster; stiff initially and tight, but it did get better toward the middle. I was planning on gently bringing my time up again until I reach 10k and then try to do one longer run again a week. But then after the run I had to do a lot of walking because of an olympic visit and today it is really tight and I am aware of it when I walk and I'm not convinced that I will be able to run tomorrow. I don't know whether I should keep trying and just run at a much slower pace or not to run at all.
Please can you all keep your fingers crossed for me.
