I signed up for my first 1/2 marathon in October. I had been running a year and my sister was going to do it with me. It's next weekend. She had to cancel a month ago for a work trip she can't miss, and I was in the deep part of terrible MS. About 2 weeks ago I started feeling better and got back to my training.
I didn't complete the amount of training I wanted to and I'm for sure much slower. But I feel like I could at least finish even if I didn't run the whole thing. Should I do it anyway? I won't have a buddy, it'll be solo.
I'm afraid of being sore the next day probably only cause I'm preggo and my coping skill are lower lol! Normally I don't mind being sore. I'll be almost 13 weeks and have permission from the doctor etc.
And last it's a long drive, so I feel like if there's no chance I'll finish or something it'll be a waste. I never made it past 8-9 miles in my training runs just because I had to take a break for a couple weeks due to MS. Just don't know what to do.
I did an 18 mile hike a few years back so I have gone a long distance before, so mentally I think I can handle it.
What do you think? Tips? Suggestions? Bag it?
