Our 12 Week Half Marathon Training Plan is our most popular training plan for the half marathon event!
This plan is designed to get you to the finish line respectably, and gives you 12 weeks to prepare.
Who Is It For?:
Runners who can run three times per week. If you’re looking for a great plan to get you through your first half-marathon, then this is it!
12 weeks // 3 months.
The plan is designed to cover the required mileage and hours on your feet to get you ready for your half marathon!
All of the runs should be done at a comfortable, sustainable, conversational pace; don’t worry about your pace or finishing time if this is your first half marathon effort.
Long runs on Sundays are there to increase your maximum mileage and time on your feet. The whole purpose of these is to run slowly – at a conversational pace – no faster. If you are struggling during these long runs, feel free to take walking breaks – no worries.
The plan includes one day or cross training and two rest days. The rest days are especially important for letting your body recover.
Feel free to download the plan and change it up to suit your schedule.
