I am leaning towards following HH 1/2 marathon as my next endeavor - starting August 1.
Has anyone used the HH Virtual Training Website and/or paid for the Premium version? I''m curious what you think.
Started C25K 3/29/11 for the third time - Graduated 7/1/11 - some of us take longer
Webster Co. Woodchopping Festival 5K (5/28/11) 38:03 "Holy crap! Did he just say 38 something? I was hopinig for 45 minutes"
Never underestimate yourself!
That Dam Race 5K 7/23/11 44:46 - a challenging route & a hot day- but I will do better next year!
"Run for the Ta-Ta's 5K 10/29/11 39:54 in the snow!
Woodchoppers 5K 5/26/12 36:08 My 5 year old was 5 minutes behind me. Way to go Liat!

And the dream race...
"Flying Pig Half Marathon" Cincinnati, OH (May 2013)
I havent, but I have heard good things. In addition I have followed a couple of his training plans over the years and found them to be very helpful. Good luck!
I am using the free version of the Hal Higdon Half-marathon training plan right now, training for the Rock and Roll race in St. Louis in October. Prior to starting this plan I have run only 5K's, so the half is an exciting goal for me.
I am finding it very useful and practical. The times in relation to the distances are a bit 'optimistic' for me. I'm slow! So, HH will say "run 4 miles, 40 minutes". I am pretty much ignoring the times and going for the distances.
I reach my first 5 mile run this weekend, and am signed up for a race that distance. Unfortunately it is going to be hot and humid, so I am certain to be walking some parts of it. Plan to use it for 'going the distance' and heat training.
Hope you find it helpful!
