Hi guys just wanted some general advice im doing the plymouth Half on 28th april, it will be my 1st half marathon. I have been running since january doing 3-4 runs a week. I have had problems through the training with my left knee but since i changed my trainers 4 weeks ago it seems to have eased off which is great news. I have done 2 lond runs over past 2 sundays 1st sunday i ran 9 mile in 1.14.52 which i felt ok, this weekend i done 12 miles which had more hills in the route and i ran it in 1.42.46 which i felt ok upto 11 miles, i felt pretty tired then but finished the 12 miles. I did feel i could push the last 1.1 mile but dont want to over do it. Ive rested yesterday and will do the same today as legs feel bit sore but i will run 5 miles tommorow easy the probably do 6 miles on friday with tempo work in that run. I will then hopefully have another crack at the 12 mile route again on sunday. My diet is ok at the moment but chocolate and diet coke is my downfall but i may cut it out all together now till after the race but from what ive wrote do u think im ready for it or is there anything else that i could do to prepare better for it maybe as i am a novice. thanks for reading
