Half Marathon Training


When you cross the finish line of your Half Marathon you will have accomplished something very special.


Designed for Beginner runners who are looking to complete their first half marathon event, the primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to COMPLETE your Half Marathon.


Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full Marathon distance events and my success coaching hundreds of runners & triathletes.


Starting 12 weeks out from your Half Marathon, this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week contains three runs. You will build up to running 2 hrs in a single session. Although not necessary, I recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with a GPS watch (such as a Garmin).


Prior to using this plan, you should be able to run non-stop for 60 minutes.


Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing related questions.

Training for another race distance? I also have training plans for IRONMAN/Challenge Triathlons (3.8km Swim/180km Bike/42km Run) and Sprint & Olympic Triathlons plus Running Races (from 5k to marathon), too.
