I ran my first 5k last weekend, and another today. I think it's safe to say I've been bitten by the 'racing' bug (I use that word loosely as what I'm doing is hardly racing
). I'm planning on signing up for a bigger race in September (in addition to any more 5ks that may come my way between now and then). I initially thought I would sign up for the quarter since 3.1 is the farthest I've done... but it's still so far away, I'm wondering if I would have adequate time to train for the half?
For those of you who have done it, how long did you train? What was your starting level? Any other thoughts/advice?
