OMG, a half marathon!!

I’ve just committed to run a half marathon. I am the girl who hated running and avoided it until the last few months. My husband has encouraged me to start running and now my girlfriend from Iowa just suggested we join her for half marathon in June! 

Do you, lovely readers, have any training suggestions? I’m very curious to know more about running schedules for 5 months before the race. I’ve currently worked up to running 3-4 miles several times a week. I’m looking up several half marathon schedules online for suggestions, for example:

Beginners’ Half-Marathon Training Schedule (from running.about.com)
Week Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
1 Rest 2 mi Rest 2.5 mi Rest 3 mi 2 mi EZ
2 Rest 2 miles Rest 3 mi CT or Rest 4 mi 2.5 mi EZ

Please feel free to give me any tips or suggestions! They will be greatly appreciated!
