Plan Description

The Sub 2-Hour Half Marathon Training Plan is designed for runners who want to run inside 2-hours for the 13.1-mile race. If you are looking at running quicker I would recommend looking at one of my more advanced plans. I also have plans suitable for runners targeting sub 2:15.

This plan is aimed at runners who can already run 4-5-milers during week 1 of the training schedule.

The plan also includes further reading along the way including nutritional advice and injury prevention tips attached in PDF form and available via JM Run Club.

The half marathon is a fantastic distance and studies suggest the most popular distance ran worldwide. The 13.1 mile event is often a gateway onto longer distance challenges or for some simply running the half is more than enough!

In purchasing this plan you're also helping to support Jonny Mellor, an international distance runner based in the UK to fund and support his own career within the sport as well as giving him the platform to compete with some of the worlds best runners, which in return Jonny will do his utmost to help and inspire others through his coaching abilities either via bespoke coaching plans or through set training plans such as this one.

The following programme is devised from proven research and experience of what some of the worlds leading athletes and coaches have used and also from personal experience, knowing what has worked and what has impaired or halted my progression as an athlete. I am a current Great Britain International Athlete and have successfully coached a series of athletes via JM Coaching of varying ages and abilities. I have personal bests of 62:23 for half marathon set at New York in 2017 and 2:12:57 for the marathon ran at Berlin in 2017 finishing 10th in both events.

A half marathon should be treated with the respect it deserves and should not be treated lightheartedly, remember fail to prepare, prepare to fail.

By following my programme you will prepare for your next event with a variety of workouts including easy running, intervals, long runs and rest days, which form an important part of any successful training schedule and arrive on race day ready to enjoy it and perform at your best.

As well as the training plan further information can be found along the way at JM Run Club, free to all runners purchasing this plan. Upon purchase please email me at jonny@jmcoaching.co.uk to receive your free discount code to access the site.
