I finished a respectable 1/2 IM (my first) on Saturday 10 May and I'm feeling a little beat-up and
I'm sunburned to a crisp. Any suggestions on preparing (mentally and physically) for a decent 1/2
Marathon on Saturday 17 May? Thanks.

Yes, GCT! I managed 3 miles last night. 10 more in 5 days?

Come on...somebody must have achieved a similar goal and stumbled across something that worked and
helped to keep the injuries at bay.

I'm sure it can and has been done, but it sure doesn't sound like a good idea. People in who've done
this in the ast are likely either genetic uber-athletes who are naturally able to resist injuries
better than most or just plain lucky that they didn't hurt themselves.

This from someone who's doing a 3.6 mile swim this weekend after doing GCT last. Oh well, at least
swimming, particularly at the pace I'll be doing it, isn't so hard on the old carcass! I definitely
wouldn't take on another half marathon this weekend.

easy swimming and deep-water run this week; an easy spin on a stationary trainer if you must. any
'training' at this point would hurt you more than help. recover and replenish your muscle glycogen
this week.

good luck!
