I am doing Windsor 1/2 M on 25th Sept, it is my 1st ever 1/2M and training was going really well (last long run was 10k in 1hr 3mins) then had a set back which meant I didn't run for 3 weeks, then went on a weeks holiday, just got back.
Did a nice 5k yesterday just over 30mins, wasn't pushing it just a leg stretch really, and I do feel really good, running is nice and easy....BUT....I've only got up to 10k distance wise, and now I feel I am too near the event to try and do a 10 miler to get some extra miles under my belt.
I am using my own made up logic that if I can do 10k comfortably, then another 5k on top of that won't be too hard, and then the final 5k will probably be hard work but do-able....just..
Am I totally deluded?... I don't want to pull out but I also don't want to b*gger myself up for weeks afterwards.....It's basically fear of the unknown so advice from people who have been there and done that would be great...pleeeeeease
