Oh no - boo! That's a shame. Hope you get to reschedule soon...
I suppose at least if you're feeling a bit weary you could use the events as group training runs. Apparently it's not illegal to take part without absolutely beasting yourself! I'm going to try that concept later in the summer! If I keep saying it I will actually do it one day! I've only ever run one half that didn't see my inching up the stairs like a crab - I wasn't even that bad after a full one.
The sub 4 runbritain schedule gets you to do 3 halves + 2 x 10kms within 10 weeks! That's definitely a challenge in my world. Still - game on!
Ben keeps going on about only 'racing' 2 halves a year - he doesn't seem to grasp that his version and mine of 'racing' are very, very different!. Better not show him the above schedule LOL
Thanks SB - the RW Ultimate Schedules include a 10K then 2 halfs in the build up so my 3 halfs is not bad - like you I have never entered a race as a training run but may do this year by entering a 20 miler (when my plan requires it) and disciplining myself to go slow; i think i can do this this year cos i am so much more focussed on the correct pacing of all training runs so as not to blow up in the marathon
Got the flu now so Sunday XC in doubt but should make it
I keep seeing 20 milers and thinking exactly the same - they seem perfect don't they? I'm still waiting for entries to open for the Robin Hood so that I can commit and then work backwards to see what's on and when.
Am trying really hard to be patient - am getting tempted to enter something else instead just so that I know that I'm doing one - no chickening out after that!!
Hope you feel better very, very soon!
