Hi team! I am asking for advice from those who’ve trained to walk or run a longer distance. I have a moderately painful hip injury and lots of little aches and pains. Working with a PT. (Details on my blog.)The race is three weeks out. I am in good enough shape to walk a half-marathon right now. It might hurt a little, and it wouldn’t be fast, but I could totally do it.
My training schedule calls for a 12-mile walk this weekend. Do I make this weekend my last long walk and just take it slow from there? Or do I wait a week, heal some more, and do the 12-miler next weekend, 2 weeks before the race?
My goal is not to just finish this half-marathon. My goal is to beat my 2008 pace of 16:30 (includes potty stops.) I am sure I can do it—if I can get some of these owies calmed down in the meantime! Thoughts, Sparkfriends?
