Half Marathon Training

I've run one 5k, but racing on foot doesn't appeal to me. Although I am competitive by nature, I know my own physical limitations enough to know that I will never cross the finish line in the front of the pack.

However, I do like to set personal challenges for myself. So I've decided to try a Half Marathon. I have no intention of racing it. My goal is to simply run the entire distance.

My training program follows:

X = Cross Training (elliptical, martial arts, yoga, dance, etc.)
S = Strength Training
