What's included: A document explaining effort/zones/intensity levels is included for reference as well as links within the workouts for more training information. E-mail support is also available to answer your questions regarding the plan.
You will get in all your key running workouts while supplementing your training with one cross training day a week to keep you balanced and in order to get to your half marathon fit, healthy, and ready to run your best. It includes strength training, days off, and active recovery days.
Before starting: This plan is designed for runners who may or may not have already tackled the half marathon distance already and want a solid finish under their belt.
You should be able to comfortably run for one hour before starting this plan. The weekly volume of the plan starts at 6:15 for the first week and peaks at 8:45. If you're not currently running the mileage prescribed in the workouts, you should start by gradually building up for a few weeks or months (depending on your starting point) before starting this plan.
