I'm thinking about entering a half marathon race in about 5 weeks time. I've been running for about two years now, but mostly short distances. Currently, I can run 3-4 miles, but I have run about 9 miles once before (about 4 months ago). I am looking for some advice on how to do this or whether you think it's possible from your own experience (I'm aware the training time is too short and I could get injured easily). I'm not looking for a good finish time, just getting to the finish line would be great! The reason why I want to do this, is just to challenge myself.
What do you think? What sort of training schedule would be appropriate in this case?
I'm looking forward for your advice. Thanks a lot!
