Am I OK, Mommies?
I am a rule follower. I find comfort in following the rules. That being said...due to my infant son's ear-tube surgery and a really nasty stomach virus that conquered my entire family--myself included--I missed the entire Week 2 of Hal Higdon's Novice half marathon training program. Now, the requirements of the first two weeks were pretty easy for me, given the previous distances I was/am running, but I feel like all hope is lost for me to run the SL half....l didn't follow all of the steps so I won't be ready. I am supposed to run a combined 14-16 miles this week, which will be a challenge, but is about the level I have been running since October. My husband insists I will pick up just fine. But is there some sort of cumulative effect I will be missing? Do you all think I'm crazy? I'm just ready to sign up for this dang thing and quit trying to talk myself out of it!
