Thanks again everyone for all your advice. Got around the bath half slowly but surely and raised over £2000 for leukemia and lymphoma research. Time of 2 hr 52 min. Sore knee but am sure it will be fine soon.
Thank you for the advice (especially as you have all given me the same advice!). Seems very strange to not be getting out for a run. Makes me feel a bit helpless and out of control and that I should be doing more to prepare myself. I think I'll go for a long swim or something this week instead, just so I feel like I'm doing something.
So... It's now a week until the Bath half marathon. I've generally been quite pleased with my progress and ran 11.5 miles a couple of weeks ago. Since then an old skiing ligament injury on my knee has been a bit niggly so I've cooled off the training a little. My knee is now a little swollen (bit of water on the knee). Not doing the bath half isn't an option as we've raised too much sponsorship to not get around the course. My question is how much should I train this week to put me in the best position for the race? Any advice gratefully received?
I think I'm going to go and walk the course so I can assess how much up hill I need to get used to. The race is officially flat with a few 'undulations', but I know Bath pretty well and I'm not sure that any of it is flat at all. I'm wondering whether it's a terminology issue and what they call an undulation is what I would call a hill and what they call a hill is actually what I would call a mountain?
Wow booktrunk - 4 stone 8 in 6 months is amazing - Congratulations!! You must be feeling fabulous.
Good run this morning. It was the first outside run that I haven't felt like I've been wearing iron boots. Only 4k but it was a bit faster than I have been and definately felt more comfortable. Feeling confident enough to go book a 5k for 4 weeks time.
