You were supposed to run 10 miles, but *only* ran 8.8?

No worries. You will be just fine. :)

You will be fine for your next long run.
If needed - just slow down.
You are building endurance on long runs!!!

The training plans I've seen recommend that after you reach a certain distance (e.g., 7 miles when training for a half), that you start alternating between "long" and "semi-long" distances for your long run. For example, 8 miles, 6 miles, 9 miles, 7 miles, 10 miles, 8 miles. Also, my sister (who has done a lot of HMs and a few marathons), recommends that your longest run occur no later than 3 weeks before your race (and preferably 4 weeks before your race). That way, your body can start to repair itself and build back up so you're in good form for the race.

You will be fine. Your training schedule is a guideline and you have been consistent. Continue with your schedule. I got sick when I was training and had to adjust my training. By race day my long run was only at 9 miles and I ran the whole half. It was a great experience! Have fun on race day....emoticon

You will be fine! I followed the Galloway program which had me running 14 miles before my first HM. A training program is a guideline - nothing is cut in stone. Try not to worry.

You'll be fine! What plan are you using? Most I've seen stop at 10 and then taper anyway.

I am so worried! I have a half marathon July 7th (4 weekends from now) that I have been training for very hard for a very long time. The training schedule says I was supposed to run 10 miles today, since this was going to be my long run day. Last weekend I ran 9 miles on my long day. BUT today I got lost and only ran 8.8 miles rather than 10. Next weekend on my long run the schedule says I am supposed to run 11 miles. Am I able to run that or did I mess up my schedule? I know it is supposed to add a mile each long run to build the endurance for the race.
