Some opinions welcomed. I have been running around 7/8 months, have run quite a few 5k races etc - average time about 28 minutes, and a couple of 10's (my last one last weekend Bupa Great Edinburgh Run was 61 minutes).
I am looking towards doing a half marathon next year, but I will also be running quite a few parkrun 5k's over the next 6 months or so.
The question is do I keep distances to around 10k-ish and do intervals, tempo runs and some distance work OR do I start working my way through a half marathon plan (which could include intervals etc) and build up my mileage gradually over the winter to half marathon distance?
I would be using the Garmin training plans on here but also have several books etc and open to all options...
What would you do?
