am training for a half marathon in march & have been adding half a mile a week to my long run. last week I ran 7.5miles just cause I was feeling great (on papar should have been 5ish) & this weeks long run was 4miles, as Id read that every 4th week of training you should have an easy week & drop back down to your distance 4 weeks ago.
question is, what distance do I now aim for next week? 4miles today was lovely & I definately had more in me so next week do you think I should match my 7.5miles or take it back to about 6miles & build back up half a mile a week?
I am also running 2 30min runs a week, one as a 30min whatever run & the other either as speed/tempo or hill training.
my sunday run next week will still leave me with 16 weeks training. I dont want to overtrain but I do want to be feeling confident that I can manage the half marathon.
any advice greatly appreciated. thankyou. ~X~
