Another half marathon distance run this morning (14+ miles total). That's 6 in the last 7 weeks. Feeling pretty good considering I couldn't jog a 5k 3 or 4 months ago.
Most of these half marathon runs have been in sub freezing temporatures. Not sure if that makes them easier or harder. Certainly seemed easier when I went from Colorado to sea level for one of them.
I started by walking a 5k every day. I'd jog a little and walk a lot. I started going further once per week, and started jogging more than walking. By the time I got up to 7 miles /11km, I was only jogging /running, no walking. At that point I pulled up the Hal Higdon marathon training plan linked here. 4 runs per week : short /medium /short /long.
I went up to 17+ miles then cut back and am basically doing 4 runs per week, about 5k/10k/5k/rest/half marathon/rest/rest. With warm up/cool down its 4/7/4/14 miles.
I think I'll add one more mile to my medium just to round out to 30 miles per week.
I don't have anything regularly for that. I am adding some weights, but am experimenting right now with a few options.

@SecondJon How did you prepare for Half Marathons?
I was also in the same state, currently I have jogged 6.5 km and could go upto 8-9. 10k is the next target and hopefully I will be able to do it in January.
