Begininng to think I might not achieve the HM in April By now I should be on week 6 of the plan and able to run 9 miles....welll I'm not there yet! The most I've done is 6.5miles.
What with the weather and work throwing spanners at my plans I was behind just after week 3 but still confident. However, I haven't been able to run now for the last 10 days as picked up another horrible cold and very chesty cough :(. After another weekend of resting I am hoping to be able to get back out there on Tuesday.
As I only now have 7 weeks until the day (yikes!) I've had to rewrite the plan to try and up the mileage (sensibly) so I have the confidence to do it (still not told very many people) but balancing against doing too much too soon. So my new plan has me doing one long run each week...starting at 7.5 miles next weekend and then uping that by a mile / mile & half each week depending on how I feel. I will report back!
On a separate note, I have been reading everyones blogs over the last few weeks but having problems posting...type a response and then it disappears! So whilst I have been 'vocal' I have been there with you all.
