Understandably last week was a bit mental – between my husband having emergency surgery to remove his appendix, my horrible cold and then my brothers wedding I have done zero miles of running. Swansea half marathon is 2 weeks away and I really don’t know if I should run it. So far, I’ve only managed a longest run of 7 miles this training cycle which I’m just not sure is long enough, so unless I do manage to get out and do another long run this week I’m not sure it’s sensible.
On the other hand, this isn’t my first half marathon. I do know what to expect now and the last one wasn’t even 3 months ago. Does this mean I should be able to manage it – expecting to be sore and unable to move afterwards of course? I just don’t know.
I’m not the kind of person who likes signing up and paying money for stuff and then not actually doing it.. so I suspect I’ll end up giving it a shot anyway and if it makes for a miserable experience it makes for a miserable experience!
Have you ever been in the situation where you felt under-trained for a race? Did you run anyway? How did it go? Let me know in the comments!
