Hi I am signed up for a half marathon,(CanadaArmy Run), on sept 21st and training hasn't been ideal. Due to injury and a late start i still havent done a long run over 11 km and have been building to a weekly avg of 30km.So with two weeks I'm wondering whether I should drop to the 5km race or wing it and run/ walk the half marathon?
It depends on how you're feeling overall and what your goals are. If you generally feel OK, no injury after-effects or nagging aches and pains, you should be OK to finish the half, either run/walk or just taking it easy. You won't set any records, but the miles you're doing are enough to let you complete the race. If you want to run a race hard though, you're better off going for the 5K.
