    I am thinking about signing up for the half-marathon in Tulsa and was wanting suggestions about how much training I need to do after I run the half in the Memorial in October. Thanks for your time

    Matt,

    What I usually do is a reverse taper.  I take the week off - easy runs or walks.  Depending on how your body feels then resume training.

    Example 
    Week 15 - 7 miles
    Week 16 - 5 miles
    Week 17 - OKC Memorial Half
    Week 18 - 5 miles
    Week 19 - 7 miles
    Week 20 resume to the regular schedule adjusted to your next race day.

    Everybody recovers differently so best to listen to your body.
