I know that this subject has been discussed elsewhere - but here is what I am intending to do after I have finished this programme.
This website walkjogrun.net/training/ has a number of training plans (all free) for varying distances 10K to full Marathon - each one has a plan for Beginner (walk, walk/run, run/walk or full run), Intermediate and Advanced runners. I will manually programme the weekly intervals into RUNKEEPER in my Android phone and use my own music. Haven't selected exactly what programme I will use yet - but I have signed up for the Sydney City2Surf 14 klm run in early August, so I might do the half-marathon training plan. HOWEVER - got to finish this one first.
I think that my biggest problem is really trying to figure out what is important for me- I would like to be able to say that I can run for 30 minutes non-stop. It is not something that I have ever thought about really - probably have never ever even thought that maybe I could do that. But do I NEED to do it or even WANT to do it?? I have been following a man on Youtube who used Galloway's run/walk programme (not going any further than 30second/30second run/walk intervals) who, over a year has run two marathons with it -- and frankly, I hardly get into a puff when running 30secs/30secs -- but could I do it over 26 miles (42 klms)????
