First of all, new to the forum and hope that this thread is OK in the "general" section, as I've a few questions, and also looking for a bit of moral support
I sprained my ankle this year (back in February... February 14th, worst day ever) which completely put me out for many months. In July I started running again (commuting from work - 4.5 miles) only once a week. I signed up to a half marathon end of September thinking that would be plenty of time to get trained up again. I'm now very worried it's not!! I'm doing approximately 4.5 miles every run, about 3 times a week. My ankle is not bothering me at all, but I'm finding it hard to up the distance "just in case". I'm going to try this afternoon to get 6 miles in. Either way, I'm very worried about injury on race day!
Secondly, this is an actual question(!) I have done 200 miles on my current running shoes (Nike Citius 4s) which on the whole I've been happy with, but they'll be coming up to 300 miles when it comes to race day. I'm a fairly light runner, but given recent injury, I'm wondering whether it'd be a good idea to pick up a new pair soon to break them in before end of September to err on the side of caution. Any thoughts?
Either way, hello and hope everyone's doing well
