Length

13 Weeks

Plan Description

This plan is intended for a first time half marathoner who wants to be prepared to complete 13.1 miles. It may start a little aggressively for a complete beginner, so if you are not currently comfortable exercising 30 minutes a day, we would recommend you complete our 8-week 5k training program prior to beginning this routine.

Aerobic endurance and proper pacing are the most important qualities to successfully completing a half marathon, so this plan focuses on a steady increase in weekly training volume and run intensity is limited. Cross-training is recommended once a week, and as an optional replacement for one weekly run for those who may be dealing with an injury or who have a history of running-related injuries.
