Back in February, I decided to sign up for a 10K in September. I thought I would have time to get fit and train but I didn't. I only started this month from scratch (never ran before) and can only run for 3K without stopping (kinda rubbish). I am now on holiday for a month and plan to train 100%. I have 7 weeks left and I guess my question is "is it impossible? Am I wasting my time? Shall I forget about this race and just try a 5K in October instead?". I REALLY don't want to give up and at the moment, I am running 4 times a week to try to get to 5K by the end of next week.
