Hi everybody. This year I started running to lose a bit of weight and improve fitness. At the beginning of the year I could only run about 3k but soon built up to 10k runs.
I decided it would be a good idea to enter the Bristol Half Marathon which is now a month away. I have ran 10 miles before on the road and have done 13 miles on a treadmill (albeit a slow 2 hrs 19 mins).
I have had a bad month due to other commitments and was looking for some advice on what sort of length runs I should do in the next four weeks building up to the event.
Should I attempt a 13 mile run outside? Or do lots of shorter runs? Any advice appreciated. Cheers
