So glad you got to 12 miles. Looking forward to hearing how you've done. I completed 9 miles last week on my long run and I'm going for 11 this week. If I manage that I'll be really pleased. 3 weeks to go for me. Cannot believe I actually signed up to do this and have stuck with it - I tend not to stick with things. Terrified but so much want to do this.
Good luck Jess and thanks to everyone else for your advice x
I pretend that they're honking at me because they think I look hot. Now I knoooow I don't - I'm red and sweaty and slow but I just smile and carry on thinking how slinky I must be looking! Lol!
I'm very lucky that when I'm out running the other runners all seem to be friendly and we have a little wave - it does feel like you're in an exclusive club! I've recently joined the running club and everyone was so nice and supportive.
Keep at it - remember no matter how slow we are or what distance we can do - we're still lapping everyone sitting on the couch!
I'm also training for my first half marathon. Mine is in 4 weeks and I'm terrified I won't be ready. My longest run so far is 7 miles but I'm planning on doing 9miles for my long run this week. I'm actually more worried about getting my head in the right place because I've had a few setbacks in my personal life these last few weeks and I constantly doubt myself. How do you stay positive and focussed?
