Plan Description

This plan is designed for those who are new to running but are looking to prepare for their first half-marathon. The maximum training week is only a little over 6 hours in duration, making it managable for most athletes. Even those with limited time for training.

The traditional easy/recovery days in this plan are Monday and Friday with the key quality sessions being Tuesdays and Saturdays.

There is a nice combination of both endurance-based sessions as well as some great speed sessions to ensure that you are well balanced as an athlete come race day.

All workouts are designed based on training zones which are customized to each individual runner. Information about how to use these training zones as well as other information regarding running form and testing can be accessed through the following link:
