I am currently running 30 miles a week and my LSR is up to 9 miles (will be 11 this weekend hopefully) in prep for my first half at the end of April, everything is going great but I am going on a week long winter mountaineering course in Scotland in 4 weeks which I can't wait for but as I am going to be out in the hills all day every day, I'm not going to have any opportunity to run, even the evenings are planned.
Fitness wise I don't think I will lose much as its going to be very active but as I'm not following a particular programme as such, I'm just wondering how to tinker with my training to get around this?
I am currently running 4-5 times a week, 1 tempo run of 5-6 miles, 2-3 steady runs of between 4-6 miles and my LSR
You have not said how long you have been on your training plan or running 30 miles per week for, maybe a week off will do you good if you having been training consistently for a few months.
And like you say you will be doing a lot of walking and climbing in that week. IMHO the week off will probably do you the world of good.
