So I posted this on the Spark message boards, but I thought this would be a great place for some feedback as well!

I've been running for about a year and a half. I generally run 6-8 miles per week, and the longest run I've ever done was an 8k last April. I'll be graduating from college next month, and with that I'll hopefully have more time for running and I'm thinking about doing a half marathon. I have a couple of questions though:

1. Is it too soon to consider half marathon training?
2. If not, does anyone have a training program they recommend?(Currently I'm looking at one from Fitness magazine, www.fitnessmagazine.com/workout/runn
in
g/training-schedules/half-marathon-tR>raining-beginner/
, but I haven't committed yet)
3. Does anyone have any tips about cross-training/eating/strength training/etc for while I'm training for a half?

Thanks!
