Another question about low versus mid volume

I’m adding a December marathon to my schedule. I’ve been preparing for a half marathon in September on the low volume plan. That’s had me under 20 miles per week to this point, and the peak week as it appears on the plan now is only 22 miles. From there, the marathon plan has a planned peak week of only 25 miles. That seems quite low!

Conversely, if I change to mid-volume, it schedules me 37 miles next week with no preamble at all - quite the jump!

Should I expect the mileage to grow organically as training progresses, or am I doing something wrong here?
