2012 Goals: No Injuries Run 1000 miles Bayshore Marathon- May Indy Full Marathon-October
I know there are lots of plans out there. Should I just choose one and stretch it out? As of now, I have only run as far as a 5k, so I know I should choose a novice program. Any reccomendations?

Thanks, Cheffy & Teresa. I think I'm going to go with that plan as well. It looks do-able.
We will support eachother okay?
Good Luck Friend!

Depending on what plan you pick, spend the weeks leading up to it building mileage. Run everything at an easy pace ... think of being able to carry on a conversation. If you were to pick a 16 week plan for example, you would have 8 weeks to build mileage. I looked at your log, and in 8 weeks you could be running 20 or so miles a week. The trick is keeping the pace easy while building mileage. Also, as Jules said, try to get your LR up there. So add the mileage to one or two runs, not every run.
Hope that helps .... good luck.
