But, I'm ready to do something...ready to improve gradually...but there are no half marathons here in the Fall (except one, which I simply won't be ready for). Given that this is Florida, most of the bigger events are in the winter...when the tourists justify their flock for warmth. So, I have time...my first half isn't scheduled until early February, after all.
So, my goal:
September (focus on mastering week 3/4 above)
October (focus on mastering week 5 above)
November (focus on mastering week 7 above)
December (focus on mastering week 8 above)
There really are not that many differences between week 8 and week 12, so that will be January (which also will include my first 10k race). Slight increase in long run, but then tapering until the final half. So, I think the plan is good. September's week will average 12 miles of running and about 6 on the elliptical (total 18)....and then December will average 17 miles of running and about 8 on the elliptical (total 25).
