Are there any good half marathon plans out there which stretch over 6 months or so rather than the typical 8 weeks? Having just spent 8 weeks getting to 10k, which was quite a struggle, I don't feel confident that in another 8 I could manage a half marathon which I was originally aiming for. I would rather wait until spring and be more prepared. Do I need to come up with my own plan or are there some longer-term ones out there somewhere?

You are wise to takes things more steadily, especially if you found it was quite a squeeze fitting in your training for the 10k over just 8 weeks. You could join the Half Marathon Challenge here on realbuzz to access the 16-week training plan for beginners. This will provide you with week-by-week training instruction and enable you to train safely for your half marathon.
