Hi all, I'm a 31 year-old male who has been running for 2 years or so, mainly just 5/10k's. I'm planning to run a half-marathon in 5 weeks but have suffered shin injuries for the last 2 months and only now feel ready to go again. I completed a 5k and a 6.5k last week to see if my shin can hold up to it and it seems okay, now the training plan as there is only five full weeks left. Any recommendations? I was thinking of this. All taking place on a Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
WEEK 1: 5.6m/4.34m/8m
WEEK 2: 5m/6.2m/8m
WEEK 3: 6m/10m/7.5m
WEEK 4: 6.2m/11m/7.5m
WEEK 5: 5m on Tuesday, 3m on Thursday, Raceday on Sunday
Is that workable or am I mad? I was aiming for 1.45 initially, now I'll just be happy to finish under 2 hours given where I am now.
Thanks for your help.
