Plan Description

A Beginner's Half Marathon plan focused on athletes that are just starting out. Athletes will get up to a 12 mile long run. This plan has one day off per week but the cross training on Wednesday can be used as an off day off if needed.

This plan is best for those just getting back into activity. The plan allows you to decide how many walk breaks you want to fit in and gives you goal run times each run. A run will say 20:00 of running total and gives you the option to break into walk breaks 3:2 (3:00 running, 2:00 walk) or your preferred ratio. This allows you to challenge yourself depending on how you're feeling a given day. It is advised that as you get closer to your race that you back off on the frequency of run breaks and try to run continuously for as long as you can.

Challenge yourself, you wouldn't have singed up for a half if you didn't want to!
