If you've been struggling to break that elusive 1:30 half marathon mark, this is the plan for you! Before starting this plan, you should be capable of a 40 min 10k (or faster) and are currently training. I have pieced together a lot of sessions that are based on distance and others that are based on time. A lot of runners (and other training plans) obsess and are very specific on distance/week volume that they are covering. I've made sure this plan is more than enough to help you reach your goals, so trust the plan! Just remember- the body knows stress, not miles. This plan averages 5 hours/week and 38.6 miles/week or 62 km/week- more than enough to get you to where you want to be.
This training plan is set up as:
Mon/Wed- easy run days
Tues/Thurs- speed/quality run days **
Fri- rest day
Sat- depends on the week- sometimes easy, sometimes harder!
Sun- just like most schedule, this is your long run day.
This schedule has a lot of track workouts, so it would be ideal if you had access to a 400m track.
