I'm running my first half marathon in NYC on March 21st and am concerned I haven't trained enough so far (a 2 week vacation, lots of snow and a 10 day detox/cleanse have kind of thrown a wrench into things). I've still been able to run 3-4 days a week, just not according to any schedule and have really not done many of the 'long runs.'
I have never done a race longer than 10k and was successful in a 10mile run in late January. The question is, what to do for the next 20 days.
I'm thinking for this week, two 6 mile runs and an 8 mile this weekend. Next week a 6 mile and a 10 mile during the week then another 5-6 mile that weekend. The week leading up to the race maybe 2 light 3-4 mile runs and nothing after Thursday (Sunday race).
Thoughts? Anything I should do differently?? I was hoping for around 2 hours (finished a 10k at an 8:49 pace) but as long as I finish I'll be happy.
