8 months to train for Half Marathon

I have not run more than a 5K, but i think i can do a half marathon in 8 months. The snow is melting and it's time for last year's knee injury to become last year's problem. It still hurts, but i have my life to live, so i will run on it when i can. I'm running on the treadmill while it's still cold out, and as long as i stretch and go slow, it's not that bad. 

I am also training for RAGBRAI again, so i have a lot to look forward to this year. 

Here's to a bright summer!

I had an MRI, and the doc said it should heal, but i don't think it is aligned properly anymore. The doc says it is, just needs to be restrengthened. The joint functions properly, for the most part. I was able to cycle 65 miles in a single day once last summer, and that was only 6 months after the accident. It is certainly a weaker leg than the other one, so hopefully it's just a strength issue.

It seems to be worse right when starting out. After a couple minutes, the endorphins take over. I figure i'll keep switching it up. I exercise every day but only run a few days a week. Cycling doesn't hurt the knee unless i am going up a steep hill or unless i go too long, so i will be doing a lot of that, too.

Roc on!

Have you had the joint analyzed by an good chiro or bone expert just to make sure everything is tracking properly?

You can dooo it! I'm in a similar situation! Training for my first ever triathlon and only just recently (in the past few months) built myself up from managing only 1 mile to now doing 7.5k and just keeps getting better.
I also get knee pain as well as ankle pain and find if it starts to flare up a day or two rest does it good instead of ignoring it and cross training builds surrounding muscles to strengthen supporting areas. I also occasionally wear a support band if an ankle or knee if feeling fragile.
