The Half is now two weeks away, and it is time to stop worrying about the training that should have been done, and start worrying about how best to survive.
The difficulty is that the aspect of running in which I was making greatest progress was in speed (relatively speaking!!). After stiffness wears off in the first mile or so, I can now stretch both legs forward pretty well, and use my feet to push with, and it's great fun.
But it doesn't last more than about 4M, and it eats up energy and quads and feet, particularly the left leg, just die.
So on the day I mustn't indulge. It will be necessary to put the brakes on, or I will burn out long before the finish. I can, of course, and probably will, do a Penguin, and walk a minute in every five or so, but I think I need to decide on a strategy and practice it in the coming fortnight.
