I am not a runner by any means but I have always wanted to be and so I have taken the plunge and I'm doing a Couch25K plan. I am currently at the beginning of week three of nine and can run for about 90 seconds without wanting to pass out (which is an improvement on last week where I wanted to pass out at one minute). As a motivator, I have signed up for a 5k race on May 18th and would like to finish in less than 40 minutes, but there is no time limit for this. The thing is, I signed up to run a half-marathon and yesterday my entry was accepted. It's not until late November but I have to complete the first half of the race in 90 minutes or less or I get directed to retire and will not be allowed to finish the race. Is it possible for me to be trained enough to run a half-marathon by November 2013? Considering I can only run for about 90 seconds at this moment in time!?
