Hi all, hope I'm posting in the right place. I realise there's loads of advice already on here and hope you don't mind me asking for specific personal advice.
I'm 56 and have only taken up running 6 weeks ago. I didn't expect to get on as well as I have but in that time, by running 3 times a week, I have progressed from jogging a mile or so to running 10 miles last weekend and 12 miles yesterday.
So, I've entered the Leicester half marathon on 14th October!
I'm pretty heavy legged after yesterday and don't want to run myself into the ground before the race. Neither do I want to ease off the training and struggle on the big day.
I'd welcome any advice on what training - running or gym work - I should now do prior to race day.
Do I need to put in another long run to keep myself "topped up"?
I've been doing a few interval runs to improve general fitness - should I continue with these?
Thanks in advance.
