18 Weeks till Marathon-Training starts now

I have 18 weeks until the Marathon! Training starts tomorrow-
When I trained for my first 1/2 I didn't follow any plan I just ran a lot. It worked but now I know for a full I will need to follow something to make sure my miles are enough before the race.
If any one has any tips or training schedules I would love to know. I have found a couple and they look similar. The one thing is I can not run more then 5 days a week.
Here is one of the plans I am looking at following.....

I am going to register in the next couple weeks! A bit scared!
This is the course map and for my first full marathon I think it is the best one for me as it is a fairly flat course. It is mid October so I am hoping it is not freezing out! My first 2 half's were in October and it WAS SO COLD!
So now that I have typed this and made a "commitment" I feel a bit nauseous......I may throw up in my mouth....ugh....

You've got this. Don't be scared. Just do it! And then eat a cupcake when it's all over. For me. :)

May I suggest Hal Higdon? I used him for my half marathon training.
