I've used Higdon's plans for several HMs and other distances.  With a bit of tailoring to your specific limiters/needs, I find these to be really good bases from which to work.

Pretty standard.  Advanced:  Easy/short M & W.  Tuesday hills or track.  Th is tempo.  Fri is off.  Sat is a race pace run.  Sunday is distance.

The intermediate and beginner plans have worked well for me and my wife in the past, as well.

I just started the advanced HM plan for an end of Feb race yesterday.  

Good luck and have fun!!

Is there any point in time of a training plan where a "big week" would be most optimal? This article discusses sports rotation and other high volume week options to improve.

I want to follow the Winter Maintenance-Run Focus program (8 weeks), but don't know when to start. I also want to do the Intermediate Sprint-12 week program before my first race.

This training plan has only 2 workouts per sport per week and peaks at 7.5 hours per week of training. Use this plan if you are time constrained or if you want to focus more on your family.

The schedule consists of 3 workouts per week in each sport, 2 days of strength training and core work too. The maximum volume is around 7 hours toward the end of the 12 weeks.
