Training Schedule

I decided I need to get my butt moving on this half marathon training. I found a training program I like at about.com and altered it to fit my needs. It had race day on a Saturday, and my race is on a Sunday, so I bumped the days. Also realized I can start at week 2, so I added in another week. The longest distance it had me going was 12 miles, so I threw in another week going to 13 miles. Then 2 weeks to recover and taper before the race.

My finished product is after the jump. I am considering Thursdays as either Cross Train (CT) or rest. I'll see how my body is feeling. Might be a great day for long walks with the dog. As I go on, I will do my best to make sure I'm not overdoing it, and I'm willing to turn cross train days into rest days.
