So many words of wisdom here. Time for a strict talk with myself. I still can't quite understand how I can get up at 5.00 to go for my runs regardless of weather (well, apart from snow) but can't give up the sweets. But will take on board all the advice given above - thank you - and try and get a grip on this.
Hi michelle. I am also signed up for an autumn half marathon. It's my first and i have a bit more of a base than you. I did c25k when i started. You will be surprisd in a couple of weeks at how much you improve so keep going. I can rin 10k slowly so i've set myself the challenge of finishing in 2h30.
