Are you looking for a training regimen to keep you consistent, yet allow flexibility in the schedule to fit your lifestyle?
- Day 1 is set for a rest day or 30 minutes of cross training exercises (bike, swim, hike, yoga)
- Day 2 set for an easy 3 mile run (a great day to add a body circuit workout after, or strides/warmup drills)
- Day 3 offers runners looking to add variety into training by rotating hills/paced runs.
- Day 4 runs are based on time to keep an easy effort consistent before the weekend
- Day 5 is off for fresh legs for Saturday long runs
- Day 6 long run is the most valuable part of half marathon training. These runs are for “time on your feet” and effort should be at “conversation pace”.
- Day 7 is for rest or an option for a second cross training day. Walking/hiking/yoga for 50′-60′ is a great way to loosen up the legs from their long run the day before.
