My half is in 52 days.
I am sooooo behind in my training. Thanks to this lovely chest cold (that I still have) I’ve done no running in over a week.
I knew the snow would be an issue and had figured I’d do a long run indoors on Sunday. Too bad on Sunday I still couldn’t breathe.
I had every intention of hitting it hard yesterday and running my heart out (kind of), but then Sunday night I had a particularly violent coughing fit for the majority of the night and didn’t sleep at all. That resulted in me taking a sick day, going to the doctor, and napping a lot. Figured running wasn’t the best option.
That said, I think I might finally be feeling better. While I didn’t sleep well last night (I blame the naps) I wasn’t up coughing all night, so I consider that a win. Fingers are soooo crossed!
That said, my plan is to start running, and running a fair amount. But i’m nervous because I was behind in my training to start.
I have 7 weeks. Can I be ready to run a half marathon in 7 weeks? I.Don’t.Know.
Keep in mind that I’m still a new runner. Any thoughts/suggestions?
I’m obviously not looking to do anything spectacular in this half, but I would like to finish it (and not walk).
Have you ever been in a similar situation?
Tonight i’m teaching spin. I may try to get a couple miles in on the treadmill before or after, but we’ll see.
I’m a little worried….
