There are a lot out there. Hal Higdon, Jeff Galloway... look at getting on a 1/2 marathon team as well.

I did the Jeff Galloway last year and while I was running faster than I was supposed to, it was just a very easy pace for me, I found I couldn't do his mileage increases w/o having compression issues in my knees after I hit 8 miles.

Which, like you, never thought I would ever do! I had to do the C25K three times before I finished it!

Anyhow...I would find a 1/2 program that works for you and just start it. You can back it up after you have gotten so far to stay within your race date too.

I recently finished the B210K and I'm feeling great. I haven't yet scheduled myself to run an actual 10K race but I plan to this summer. I'm looking for some direction on where to go next? I honestly never thought I'd ever even make it through the C25K program and I was very hesitant to start the 10K program but I did it and I love it. I'm currently running about 15-20 miles a week and I keep slowly increasing both my time and distance. A friend of mine asked me to run a 1/2 marathon with her in fall and I'm considering it...I'm just not sure how to go about it. When I completed C25K, I redid the whole program to from start to finish to better my times. Then I mixed in some HIIT and finally talked myself into B210K. Should I redo B210K also? Or does anyone know of any good 1/2 marathon programs or apps to follow??
