Firstly sorry if this question has been asked lots but the search function isn't working so can't check old messages.
I'm running the Bristol half Marathon next sunday and following a sub 1.45 plan which I followed for Bath and ran it 1.42, but for the last week of training for Bath I had a terrible cold so only ran one 10 mile run and a 3 miler during the week.
So my question is do I keep to the plan which is the followingunday:- 12 miles, Monday:- Rest, Tues:- 3 miles plus 6x60m strides, Weds:- 3miles, Thurs:-5 miles(race pace), Fri:-2miles OR do I keep to what I did for Bath?
Don't know if this helps but ran a total of 33 miles last week which included 13.2 miles on Saturday. Thanks for any help or any other training suggestions, am getting a bit confused with what to do.
i'm not an expert but i would not be running that up to 1/2 week.
i'm running Bristol as well, i'm doing a 10 miler tomorrow and a 4 miler tuesday and thats it i'm done! i need the rest and want to feel like im going in with fresh legs!
no expert again.but seems high to me...............I always like a real big taper and cut right back..but then everyone is different........definitely wouldn't do 12 the week before
but then if I do a half as part of marathon training I don't taper hardly at all......................so I'm not very consistent
