Advanced Half Marathon Plan - 12 Weeks
Jodie OborneAll plans by this Coach
This training program is for experienced athletes chasing a half marathon personal best or to challenge themselves. Athletes should be already training consistently, this program will help you prepare for your specific event.
Training sessions are primarily based on time not distance, the weather varies as does how you feel and how well you slept. These will all impact your training so it's important to not be too focused on pace particularly in your easy runs. Save everything for the quality sessions, the interval, tempo and long runs. Treat the easy runs after hard efforts as active recovery.
Vary the terrain on which you run and routes that you run. Running shouldn't hurt and by adding some variety you keep things interesting and the mind engaged. Don't expect every run to be great. You have to have the not so good days to really appreciate the good. At the end of the day it is the effort not the pace that matters in training.
Make sure you have updated your threshold pace in settings. Training Peaks will calculate the training paces for each session, use these as a guide a range is always provided.
