This half-marathon training program is well-suited to those who have recently been training for shorter running distances, and feel ready for more distance. This training will build upon that fitness base. If you are new to running, been away for quite a while, or are dealing with pain and injury in your running we strongly recommend that you begin technique and fitness training for short distances first, to build a safe and strong foundation for longer distance running. 5K and then 10K would be more suitable distances to start with.
This program would suit:
- Those who have been cleared by a doctor (and perhaps a sports physio-therapist for those who have been injured) to participate in run training and racing.
- Those who can currently run 3 miles continuously (or 30 minutes) without injury or pain (discomfort is OK because we will show you how to reduce that and avoid injury).
- Those who have been running 12 miles a week or more for the previous month.
- Or, those who have a long history of running, with a substantial running base in this last year, and have only recently taken some time away.
If you have any questions or doubts about whether you are ready for this program please contact us to discuss your situation.
