Well, I am going to take the plunge. I am doing another half marathon with my brother and dad in May, and I am going to begin training for the Full today. I am going to be using the Galloway run/walk method, which should get me through. I am really excited!
Not entirely sure if this training session will take, but I will stick to it until at least my half and take an inventory there. The race I have targeted is the Run Crazy Horse in South Dakota in October. Tommy found it actually, and while he won't run it, he'd still like to go with our camper. So we will see!
The plan I have runs 30 weeks, with two 30 minute maintenance runs a week, plus one long run, starting at 3miles the first week and working up to 26 miles in week 26. What I like about the plan is the long run doesn't increase every week like 16 week plans, every second week you have a short long run, so the time needed to train is less per week (but twice as long in weeks). I think this will work much better for me.
