Best Half Marathon Training Program

I am so thankful for this group - you guys have been supportive and always there for my questions.

 

A bit of background - I have been running consistently since June 21st and have run several 5K's.

I am currently running 3-4 miles 3-4 times per week. (still doing a run:walk program usualy 4:2 at this time) and have been injury free for quite a long time.

I am doing the Turkey Trot 5 miles in one more week!

 

I am looking (ok fantasizing) about running the half marathon in Miami with my cousin. The race is January 30th -- and if I do the race I will also get a trip to South Beach and a couple days in Disney which is a huge motivation for me.

 

I am looking to make a time... I am just looking to survive it! I know it wont be easy ... but anyways....

 

Does anyone have a recommendation on a half marathon training program that they have used --- that they like -- that worked?

 

Thanks so much!

    Re: Best Half Marathon Training Program

    On the 7th I ran the NYC marathon and this was my first marathon.  I used the training program on marathonrookie.com.  I found the program worked for me and the site had a lot of useful information.  I will be using their 1/2 marathon training program to run a 1/2 marathon in the spring.  Good luck - you can do it !!!!
