I'm training for a HM in Oct and had built up to 15km. However, a combination of work and holiday will mean I will go 5 weeks without managing a long run.
The first 2 of these weeks were not too bad, I managed 3 shorter runs each week, including a tempo and an interval session each week, and a lot of cross training. I didn't do a long run, but did run 45 mins on legs tired from 4 hours cycling.
Last week, this week and next week are very different. I've managed about 20 mins of conditioning/strengthening exercises about 3 times a week, but little aerobic apart from a bit of skipping. This is because I'm away, working long hours, and it's not possible to go out running.
When I get home, can I just pick up where I left off with a 15km long run or do I need to drop the distance back down? If so, how quickly can I pick up again?
I'm really missing it!
