My half marathon is on Saturday and up until 2 weeks ago I was feeling prepared but then life got in the way and my training fell by the wayside slightly. I only managed 2 x 30min runs last week while I was on holiday and my last long run was 18km about 4 weeks ago. I haven't been able to do anything this week not even cross training because I've caught a bad cold. I'm feeling slightly better today but I'm just praying I'll be fully recovered by Saturday! Having asthma if I have even a slight cough or cold it can really affect my breathing. I'm going to be so hacked off if I end up not being able to run after months of training
I'm trying to get lots of early nights and taking cold & flu medicine, not sure what else I can do. I would really like to get a small run in but not sure if its a good idea and its getting close now.
I was aiming to finish in 2:30 or less or I would at least like to be able to run the entire race without walking. I guess I'll just need to hope for the best and see how I feel on the day. I'm just going to be so disappointed if I'm not feeling 100% and have a crap race
