Training Load By Week

The "Half Marathon 'Finisher'" plan is designed for a runner comfortable with 3-5 miles with the goal of finishing the half marathon happily and healthfully. If this plan is too conservative please consider the "Half Marathon 'Pacer'" or "Racer" plans. If this plan appears to be beyond your ability please contact me for other options at pbtau@hotmail.com. Thanks, Matt Ebersole
