Marathon support

I want to thank everyone who commented on my previous post. I appreciat all the support you are giving me.

Now my plan I kinda went over it but in more detail. I am doing a 10k training program, I am starting from the beginning. I have completed 2 days, it has 3 sessions a week, I am going to do that 3 days, then eliptical and spinning 2 days a week. The 10k training is pretty basic, but I need want to be able to run in 3-5 mile incraments, something I can't do yet. So I figure starting slow with this, starting from scratch as well will help in the long run(no pun intended). It really involves, this first week running 1 minute walking 2, repeat. The next week it jumps up to running 2 minutes walking 2 minutes...and so on, until I will be running 10, 20, and 30 minute stretches.

Then after the 12 weeks of that is done...I will start the 12 week marathon training program. From reading about this program it assumes you can run 3 miles, well I can run 3 miles with out stopping so that is why I am doing 10k trainging, then this one .

So that is my plan for the half marathon. I am 2 days into it and still totally motivated!
