Whilst I will follow the schedule, I wont be doing so to the letter and I do feel some sharper sessions are in order as I dont want to not run any faster than HM pace.
I like the idea of a long run off the back of a parkrun. That will also force me to train at a time of day when the race is. Currently I either run at the crack of dawn or lunchtime.
I did wonder about the 1.25 target for the HM as that doesn't give a lot of room for error in the full.
Anyway, I think the first challange is making the start line without breaking down injured!
