How The Plan Works
For nearly all runners who have jobs to go to and families to take care of — which of course means nearly all runners — it can be next to impossible to adhere to a training plan that requires you to run multiple days each week, many weeks and months in a row. If you are looking to run your first half marathon, please consider our week training plan for beginning runners , which provides a more intensive training regimen. Note also that this training program is spread out over 16 weeks rather than 12 weeks, to give your muscles more time to get ready. The schedule above places the weekly long run on Saturday, followed by a usually much shorter quick run on Sunday. Also feel free to move around the mid-week runs as your schedule demands — just make sure you get in two runs of 30 to 60 minutes each in the middle of the week before your long run each weekend. Remember that there are a number of ways to structure a half marathon training plan.
