Umm you are absolutely right, and I apologise mate. I guess that reading both Zanzinger's and your posts almost in succession, I asumed that this was evolving into a lets bash the noob thread... Should not have jumped to conclussions so early.
p$ Zan, I agree with you in the sense that I misused words> what I actually meant is that, being a n00b, I am trying to adhere to my schedule to the letter in order to ensure a relatively smooth Half Marathon. So given that for two weeks I have (in my opinion) put more miles and intensity than what is suggested in my schedule, I was a bit unsure about how this could affect my fitness and/or performance.
I guess that I have read far too many stories of people who train with too eagerness and end up burnt!
