Plan Description

The ideal candidates for The Lockwood Half Marathon Method are beginner runners that may already be "trained up" with prior running experience in the 5K and 10K race distance. This comprehensive program is specifically designed to help them to complete their first half marathon with a focus on crossing the finish line in a specific amount of time.

The 12-week program incorporates 4 weeks of Base, 4 weeks of Build, and 4 weeks of Peak volume that includes 1 week of tapering. Largest peak volume week tops at about 1.5x half marathon distance (~20 Miles). The program includes integrated recovery approaches to rest and harvest gains as well as strength training to build leg and core muscle necessary for running longer distances.

There is periodic field testing to assess advances. Comes with a companion 70+ page eBook with detailed instructions on how to qualify including race logistics. Also comes with a Running Performance Console spreadsheet-based calculators with the dashboard.
