Plan Description



The Beginner's Half Marathon Plan/h3>
"It's not what you get from your training, it's what you become from your training"

Who is this plan for?
So you just signed up for a half marathon. Maybe you've done a few other races and it's time! Time to pick up the mileage and get comfortable with a new distance. This plan is designed for a true beginner who is just getting comfortable with distances over 10km/ 6.24 and are trying to understand how to bridge the gap between the 10K and half.

This plan delivers a 16 week training schedule
In 16 weeks you'll go form your first run to the finish line. This plan is designed to deliver confidence at the start line with the fitness to push all the way into the finish line of your first Half Marathon. This plan starts with 4 days a week of running and builds up to 5 days a week of running. With a max weekly mileage of 31 miles/ week, a peak long run of 12 miles and a standard 2 week taper. This plan has built in recovery weeks so you can recover and feel confident as you tackle personal distance PR's week to week.

Make it easy
Still learning about running and how to read this plan. Let the plan tell you how far, how fast, and how often. This plan has integrated workouts with the TrainingPeaks Workout builder which means that once your zones are set your workouts are designed for your paces and ability. You can download every single workout to your watch and let your watch take you through the intervals, tempos, and even your easy days

Before you jump into this plan you should be able to:
- Confidently complete a 10K or 8 Mile Easy Run
- Confidently run for 45-60 minute4
- Have an appropriate amount of time to train for an event of this duration (4-6hours/week)
