The super simple 12-week half marathon plan is designed for the new or beginner runners looking to finish their first half marathon.
You should be comfortable running 10-15 miles per week with at least a 5 mile long run. The goal of this half marathon plan is to increase your weekly mileage to 20-25 miles per week, get you comfortable and confident running 13 miles, and to incorporate workouts that will challenge your aerobic system.The first 6 weeks of the program are designed to gradually build your mileage and long runs so you can stay injury-free. During the last 6 weeks of training we continue to build your mileage safely while also including some introductory workouts to improve your aerobic fitness. By the end of the 12 weeks you’ll be ready to not just run a half marathon, but finish strong.
