Runners...

Training for a half marathon. 13.1 miles. Looking for some good programs to try. Run is in November, so 4 months away.

Let me know,

LOL I was JUST about to make a post about running.

I started a running program just this week. Damn it feels good, but I need work.

I do a mile (every day) the first week, mile and a half the 2nd and so on. Increase my distance by a half mile each week.

With the time you need Id probably up the distance or split the week between half miles. Good luck Daniel!

Experience? Distance per week now? Any injuries you are dealing with? Training to finish or to place? How many weeks until the 1/2 marathon?

My 401K is now a 400K (was 301K)

Week 1: 7 miles
Week 2: 10.5 miles
Week 3: 14 miles
Week 4: 17.5 miles

Your weekly increases are a little much. You should really hold your mileage increase to about 10% a week. But you are only starting with a mile the first week so you should be ok through the first month.

How many miles per week do you want to peak at?

Hal Higdon is a well-known running coach. His programs have been used by countless people to either finish races or actually compete in races.

Beginner (to finish):
http://www.halhigdon.com/halfmarathon/novice.htm

Intermediate (to improve):
http://www.halhigdon.com/halfmarathon/inter.htm

Advanced (to compete):
http://www.halhigdon.com/halfmarathon/adv.htm

He only trains for 12 weeks so you have a few weeks to either build your distance up to the programs or you might just take week one or two and steady state that week until you are 12 weeks out.

I assume you are looking to run the Dallas Running Club Half on November 4th. That would give you 18 weeks from next Sunday. You could take week 1 or 2 from any of the programs and repeat it for the next 6 weeks and then jump into the program. If you aren't up to the first week numbers on the program you want to use build up to the first week over the next 6 weeks.

If she's doing it through the Dallas Running Club, that's what my wife is doing right now. We're in Dallas, I'm sure my wife would like someone to run with when she can't make the meets, if your friend isn't very far away. We're around Mockingbird and 75.

just make sure you can run the length of time you plan on running the half in, once a week the last 3 weeks leading up to the half

example: if you plan on running a 9:30pace, then make sure you can run for 2 hours + during your training, even if you're not running that pace but just mixing in 10:30 miles with a few minutes of walking every 30 minutes or so
