You have three months (or roughly 13 weeks) until the Higdon plan starts. I've had a quick google to see the plan, and the first week is a few 3mile runs plus a long run of 6 miles. So , as a minimum, you want to make sure you are good enough shape to run six miles without stopping at the start of the plan.
If you've been using training schedules to help with your running and to keep you motivated, you could follow a plan for a fictional 10k or preferably a half-mara in the interim period. As this period will include Xmas etc, you may want to find a 10 week plan for the 13 weeks, so you can skip a week or two and not feel guilty.
