4 weeks, 13.1 miles.

So from the day I signed up for my first half marathon to today, I have not trained. This means that I have only 1 month, yes 4 weeks, yep only 28 days, to train until race day. Again, I’ve put myself in a limited time situation and have no way out. Why I have done this, I do not know. I am foolish to think I have enough time. I have not prepared at all and do not know what is a good time for me. Without any knowledge of a decent half marathon time, I thought about 3 hours would be okay. Shave off an hour and it will be. Now, my plan is defected. I have to speed up, as well as endure even longer. Maybe it wasn’t a good idea to read about training and half marathons, I’ve just frightened myself into a hole of anxiety and doubt. The time I have to train is not ideal, as consented by many different blogs I’ve read. However, there is no choice. I may be taking my youth for granted, but I hope these legs has enough endurance to power through these 13 miles continuously. What I’m afraid most, is not being able to finish. Not only do I have to train my legs, but I have to train my mind to deal with the longevity of the run. Well, it’s go time and I must suck it up for this month. Just hoping I will finish.
