Plan Description

This Half Marathon beginner plan is geared towards runners who are doing their first half marathon and want to train to run the half marathon without walking. It starts with a long run of 4 miles and progresses each week. The plan includes three runs per week, optional cross-training workouts, functional strength workouts, yoga, and rest days, and includes a field test to set heart rate zones. This plan is perfect for those who have been running 30-50 minutes 3-4 times per week for at least six months.
