Well this is good except I was looking for a training schedule to embrace running... the one you provide does nothing for me... it goes from run/walking to running 2 miles in one week...shoot, I have been run/walking 5 miles for a while and still can't "run" longer than 5 minutes at a time within that framework...was looking for ways to improve but I guess I will just keep doing what I am doing, lol

I used the intermediate guide to train for a half marathon. It worked well. I did 2:06 and for a 49 y/o woman with a family and a job I think that's pretty righteous. The one thing I might change is the taper period pre-race felt rigorous. I was tired on race day. In hindsight I think a little more rest the 2 weeks prior would have helped. This was a great program, though, easy to follow and I'll use it again, with that small modification.
