ABOUT THE BEGINNER
HALF MARATHON PLAN
Longer intervals at a half marathon effort will help you get used to what race day will feel like, and shorter intervals will challenge your comfort zone so that you can step onto the start line with the confidence to conquer anything (and the reassurance that you only have to conquer 13.1 miles).
ARE YOU READY FOR THE
HALF MARATHON CHALLENGE?
It would be best if you were confident running for 30 mins continuously a couple of times a week, and ideally have 4 weeks of regular running in your legs before you start this plan. Some adaptations take longer, and when we take on a challenge like the half, we want to be as rob USB as possible going into it.
In completing this training plan, we want to focus on consistency. Be honest about your other commitments, and make time in your diary not only for the sessions themselves but also for your recovery (that’s not just doing nothing… think sleep, stress management & nutrition)
Remember to enjoy yourself! Running is fun (honestly) & you’re going to be a half-marathoner any the end of this, so keep a smile on your face, keep showing up, and remember race day is just a celebration of the hard work it took to get on that start line!
