Somehow the months slipped away and there are now 2 weeks (or 1 week and 6 days to be precise) left until the half marathon. I have done FAR too little to prepare.
I ran a half marathon last year, I was in the early stages of pregnancy and finished just over 2 hours. I remember feeling terrified and posting similar messages back then, especially when I discovered I was pregnant. I kept on running until about half way through the pregnancy, then it became too uncomfortable. I only picked my trainers up again in January, but a run every 10 days does little to improve fitness....
Yesterday I managed 5km in about half an hour, with a walking break after about 20 minutes. That is the longest distance I have covered since having my last baby (although I have done this a few times). I want to do the half M, even if I walk/run and walk some more, but what is the best way to use these last two weeks? I know I am supposed to taper now, but having only ran 5km there is little to taper from. Could I try to get a longer run in tomorrow, perhaps 10km with some walking and then a few more 5-6 km runs until about 3-4 days before? I am not aiming for a PB or anything, just getting around without putting me off running for life would do!
Any advice gratefully received!
