All plans by this Coach


16 Weeks

Plan Description

This half marathon training program is perfect for athletes looking to excel at their first 1/2 marathon. This plan is ideal for those athletes looking for a beginner program.

Athletes will begin with a 10 mile week and top out around 25 miles per week. This program has some flexibility as the majority of the runs are distance focused, but towards the end of the program the focus shifts to "time on feet" to make sure we recover properly.

This half marathon training plan focuses on building a strong foundation with "easy" and "aerobic" runs.
