Hey there! You’ll be fine with 5 if that what you feel up to. I usually do 6 the week before the race, but it hardly matters at this point. You’re all trained up (a couple mid length runs last week is fine) and you won’t lose that this week. You more want to think about being healthy for next weekend So it’s smart to take it kinda easy. Good luck!!

It really doesn’t matter how far you run. You’ve done the distance and you’re not going to lose that fitness in one week. PERSONALLY, if I’m not feeling well the week going into the race, I find that rest is better than any distance, but I do know that sometimes you just need to get a few miles in so you have some confidence going for you. I think 3-5 would be perfect. Take it easy and enjoy it.

Good luck and have fun at your race!

Take it easy and get better! You’ve already done the work, a few miles off on the last week won’t make a difference. And you’ve already hit 12 miles, which is a lot for training for a half. Lots of training programs cap out at 10 or 11 miles. You will definitely be ready.

If you did 12 miles recently, you should be fine. Consider however much you run now a taper. Have fun! Half marathon is my favorite race distance.
