Plan Description

Hal Higdon: Beginning Runner's Guide--The 30/60 Plan: This 30/60 plan is for beginning runners, true novices, those of you who never have run before, but who would like to become a runner, whether for fitness or to some day run a marathon. It differs from my 30/30 plan only in that you take twice as long to complete it, walking or running every other day instead of every day. For more information on how to begin, visit the Beginning Runner's Guide on my website,
