This is a beginner friendly half marathon plan. It is designed around four runs a week: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Athletes are encouraged to rest on Monday and Friday while crosstraining on Wednesday.
The plan starts with an initial run of 3 miles or 30 minutes. It builds to a long run of 10 miles and a total weekly mileage of 20-25, depending on the athlete. All the runs should be performed at easy, conversational pace. In addition to training, week 6 includes a 10k race so that the athlete can prepare themselves for race like conditions.
