I've been training for the Royal Parks Half Marathon which is in October. As I'm very much a beginner runner (started C25K in January this year), the excitement of actually being able to run any distance at all has kept me going to complete a 5k-10k programme and I'm now on week 8 of a 12 week 21K programme and running for 90 minutes - or about 8.5-9miles.
Obviously, I'm going to finish in a month and be 'ready' for the half marathon - far too early.
Any ideas what I should do? Should I try staying at a 10 mile long weekend run for the next couple of months, with 3 shorter runs in the week, and then take up the training again later to increase mileage? Or maybe drop back to a 60 minute weekly run to try to avoid getting injured?
Any advice would be welcome. Thanks!
