Learn More about Structured Workouts.

I've written the first two months of a four-month half marathon training plan. If you purchase this plan please reach out to me and I will calculate your goal paces that you're to use for all of your runs - speed and endurance. I've also included very specific strength workouts as a strong body/core means more speed and endurance. All runs are set to threshold heart rate pace, however you can also use the paces I will calculate for you.

This plan assumes a moderate level of fitness, meaning you've been doing 4 - 5 hours of cardio/strength per week. I've added times for each of the workouts, however you may finish them quicker or slower than noted. That is okay, it's more important that you get in the mileage.
