Half Marathon Training Schedule

This weekend kicks off this year's races. I get the chance to run with SCRR for the second marathon kick off race.  I'm pretty sure it's just a practice 5k, but I'm still excited! I'm going to get ready by running outside tonight and tomorrow because it's supposed to only be about 30 degrees and I haven't really ran in anything under 40 degrees. 
This Sunday is also a 9 week count down to my very first half marathon! Since my training has been in kind of a slump, I have this awesome chart to get my workouts in. 
I'm not out of shape, so I'm not starting from scratch but I am going to make sure I get enough runs in along with strength training, and yoga at least twice a week.  I'm using Friday as my rest day because usually my friends want to go out on Fridays and I will have yoga and strength training or a long run on Saturday and Sunday. 
This is just a basic layout to make sure I stay on track.  I think it's also a chart of beginners to get started. I start my workout weeks with my actual work week, that way it's like I'm starting a new week for everything Monday morning. Happy Monday!! So, if you decide to use this as a beginning training chart, just change the miles to a little lower until you work your way up. 

Your turn!
When is your next race?
What does your training chart look like?
