When you cross the finish line of your Half Marathon, having run faster than you have in recent events you will have accomplished something very special.
Designed for Intermediate runners who are looking to run the Half Marathon faster, the primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to COMPLETE your Half Marathon FASTER than before.
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 finishes and my success coaching hundreds of runners and triathletes.
Starting 24 weeks before your Half Marathon (this plan can be started at any time and is reusable), this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week typically contains 3x runs and a flexibility session. You will build up to 2:00 hrs 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 for 90min consistently.
Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing-related questions.
