im a little late to the party here but I must cast my vote for Run/walk Galloway style training. No hard efforts, keep your pace conversational.. meaning you can talk and run at the same time.. if you are labored and unable to use complete sentences, you are training way too hard.

glad to have you back and congrats on the fine addition :)

Welcome and congrats on having your baby (I love newborns!). Good luck on training for your next half marathon! Yes, it's a bit of a ways off, but you can never start too early!

Huge fan of John the Penguin Bingham here --- Marathoning for Mortals (one of his books) has lots of great training info and plans for half marathons up to full marathons at full walk, walk/run interval, run/walk interval, and full runs.

I used Hal Higdon for my first half this past October and it was great. You shouldn't have any trouble, especially if you already were a runner! good luck!

Starting first with a C25K program is a way to guage how you are with pace and endurance without going all out. I went back to this program after having a great 2012 and a so so 2013. I have seen my pace iimprove greatly. Great that you want to get back into it. Good Luck! Keep us posted on your progress.

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have resources they can suggest for a gal who wants to return to running after 6 months off? I recently had a baby, and I'm eager to return to my passion -- I ran my last HM in October of 2012, and my goal is to run another one in October of 2014. I know that's a long way away, but with a newborn at home, 25 pounds of pregnancy weight, and a very long hiatus from running, I know I need all that time to build back!

It's been so long since I built my base that I just don't remember how to do it. Any suggestions? Websites/ books/ magazines that could help me would be great too.

"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard everybody would do it. It's the hard that makes it great."
