Default Half marathon in april - My training has gone shit.

How many people here have ran a half marathon before?

Im doing one in April, April 4th to be exact, and i am absolutely bricking it. I've done f*** all training so far this week, but i've got a 6mile sport relief run on Sunday. The most i've run without stops so far was 4.5 miles last week, at a tempo of about 6mph.

Thats shit training isn't it? Im never gonna be able to do 13 miles in 3 weeks time. Im going to look a prick.

Oh dear. Pretty early isn't it? I'll forgive you, not sure about any of the other comedy legends on this board though.

Confirmed.

Plenty of half marathons over the Summer though. Get off here and er....do a bit of running is my only "insight" at this stage.

Just f*** it. At most it'll only be for your own personal achievement or charity so is it really worth it?

Yes that is pretty shit. I did a half last March and you should have done about 8/10 miles by now...
