Training for Excellence, with Excellent Training

Auckland Half Marathon
Marathon & Half Marathon's Training Plan

Thursday Training Plan – Auckland Marathon & Half Marathon 16 Week Training Plan

“Training for excellence, with excellent training.”

When you cross the finish line of the Auckland Half or Full Marathon, you will have accomplished something very special and will have earned it.

Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full marathon distance events and my success coaching hundreds of runners and triathletes.

Beginner Auckland Half Marathon Training Plan

Designed for Beginner runners who are looking to complete the Auckland Half Marathon event for the first time, the primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to COMPLETE YOUR event.

Starting 16 weeks before the Auckland Half Marathon (starting on 09-Jul-18), this plan progresses through phases to build up your fitness. Each week contains three runs. You will build up to 2 hours running in a single session. Although not necessary, I recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with a GPS watch (such as a Garmin).

Prior to using this plan, you should be able to run non-stop for 60 minutes.
