4 Weeks Until Half-Marathon - help!

Posted: Yesterday at 20:19

. if you have 4 weeks, does that mean 3 weekends for three further long runs and then race? 

if so, I would increase my following long runs like this:

1 - 13k

2 - 16k

3  - 16k

4 - race

 I think if you can run 10-11 miles (15-16k), you can do the half marathon. Take it slowly. 

Getting back into it!

Nothing worse than having a break in running and coming back to the harsh reality that your legs can't keep up with your psychological view of fitness.  the two need to get aligned. Reduce your expectations and run slower.  you'll soon be back on track.

Injured but maintaining fitness

Posted: 21/01/2015 at 21:38

This all happened today?  Jeez, don't push yourself too hard. That sounds painful/nasty/serious/upsetting.  

Part of being hurt/injured is getting over the upset of it.  Sleep on it. See how you feel in the morning. You aren't going to lose much fitness in two weeks. It's not a long time.

swimming (depending on how you do it) might be the best thing.

i always say aqua jogging, but I'm no medical person and your back injury worries me.

have a cup of tea. Two weeks rest. And all will be well.

(Remember it's not just about maintaining fitness but about getting better properly and quickly - so don't do anything that is going to prolong your injury)  

most endorphins from alcohol or exercise

Erm, are you really comparing drinking alcohol (or an alcohol addiction) with exercise?

Hackney's £7 more, so not much in it.....but I'm all for new races. Hopefully it will be improved this year.

Good to hear! It seems that they may have taken on board the feedback with the change of route, t-shirt and water stations. 

It is a bit pricey.....but the roads are closed and it's london, so I think that's just the cost these days.  

i'm looking forward to it!
