I was already planning on upping my running this week (was trying to get more into running and didn't want to burn out) but now I'm gonna have to run longer! I don't have a bike, so I am at a bit of a disadvantage, but I have gym stationary bikes I can use as well. This is gonna be a fun way to get in better shape.

I saw you run 13.1 the other day (when it was hot as the devil's asshole outside). I was pretty impressed not gonna lie. I ran 3 today and thought I was gonna die and it was about 10 degrees cooler than when you ran 13.1

The last 2 miles were rough.. Luckily starting Wednesday it's supposed to return to normal Summer and get away from devil's asshole weather.

We're gonna have a good day tomorrow (like high 70s) so I'm gonna try to get in a 3.5/4 miler. I was trying to go every other day just to get myself back into the swing of things, but I think I'm gonna transition to 2 on, 1 off for the next two weeks, then follow an actual half marathon training program when I'm in actual running shape.

Sounds like a smart plan.

Do you think mid way through August  to November is a long enough timeline to get in shape for the half? I'm worried it's a little too short of a time

I trained from running 2 miles to a marathon in 4 months when I was in college.  So I would think 2 1/2 months for a half would be doable

If you're doing a mid-November run I think it's doable.  Especially if you're building up your mileage prior to mid-August.  That gives you about 12 weeks and I think as long as you're doing your long runs on the weekend consistently you would make it fine.

Gotcha thanks guys, I'm just nervous as the only competitive race I've run is a 5k and the farthest I've gone in one go is probably 6 miles. I've just really liked how actually having a foreseeable goal to move forward towards has completely changed how I view running (it has actually made me want to train and get better) and it's making me feel much better, so I don't want to change up with what I've been doing.

Half Marathons are my favorite race to run.  It feels like an accomplishment because of the length, but the time required for training is manageable.  I've probably run 15 of them over the past 5 years, so let me know if you ever need any advice!

Have you done a full marathon? (probably a dumb question because you definitely have) I'm thinking if the half goes well I might shoot to run a full come next fall. There are some in the spring, but running in the winter bothers my asthma worse than running in the summer and I don't want to go into a race mainly training on a treadmill because I hate running on the treadmill, bothers my knees.

Prior to beginning my marathon training I had never run longer than 5K before
