Finished my 1st Half-Marathon. What to do next?

First of all im new to the forum so hello everyone.

 

On friday I just finished my 1st half marathon in Tel-aviv marathon.

It was a great event! I trained for the past two monthes using cool-running's free begginer training plan from here:

http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_4/134.shtml

 

The race was very hard for me due to a back pain that started 10 minutes(!) before the race

I managed to finish the race in 2:7:24, with a tremendous effort and pain.

I'll take care of my back and recover but now I really want to try train for another half and finish below 2hrs.

 

so what do i do now?

start the beginner plan all over again?

start the intermidiate?

when can I run my next rece?

 

 

Thnks!
