Had you adopted the Run/Walk strategy throughout all your training? If not, why did you decide to try it with about 3 weeks to go?
I have only tried it once (run walk on a 18m and it went well), I get very nervous /overwhelmed when the distance is over 17m and I thought this might be a method of coping. I did try a running club a couple of times, but with the group I was in it was endless stops (toilet/drinks) which I didn't think was giving me confidence.
