Having run in two race for lifes over the Summer - 5K 35 mins, I thought I would enter the Robin Hood half Marathon.
My 'training' amounts to one 5 mile run a week and two shorter 3 mile runs or 'speed' session on the treadmill. The longest run I have done is 75 mins and at 11-12 mins a mile that was probably 6.5 miles. I have just come back from 2 weeks holiday with no running (although we did cycle 30 miles every day) and am really concerned as to whether to take part in the half marathon.
My plan would be to concentrate on one long run a week 8, 10 and then 12 miles with a couple of shorter ones during the week. I am aiming for about 2hrs 30min but will genuinely be happy to finish.
Just wondered if any of you who have been through this 'over ambitious' stage have any advice ?
