Half Marathon Training Plan

When you're ready for a more challenging race, a Half Marathon is a great transition from a 10K. Depending on your fitness level, give yourself plenty of time to train and use this 14-week Half Marathon Training Plan to prepare for a 13.1 mile race. Always consult your physician before  starting any training program.

TIPS: This training plan is designed for intermediate athletes that can run about 3 miles. When running at this level, you must eat proper  nutrition to fuel your body. Be sure to stay well hydrated and depending on your nutritional needs, consume a diet of mostly unprocessed  foods that includes  protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats. See page 25 in RaceTimes for running snack ideas.
