Half-marathon pre-training plan

I'm running in the Edinburgh half marathon in may (my first half). Most of the training plans I've looked at are 12 weeks (so would start early march). Just wondering what I should be concentrating on before then? Or does anyone know of any longer training plans? Thanks Will

    I've made plans longer just by repeating a few of the earlier weeks. Its also worth starting a week or so early just in case of illness/unforseen problems.

    Good luck, make sure above all else you enjoy it!  

  • Getting in some decent steady mileage, with the occassional tempo/fartlek session would be ideal preparation. A lot of plans often specify a recommeded weekly mileage you should be capable of before starting a plan. No point in peaking too early
