7 Week Half Marathon Training

Hey Hey Hey! How are y’all doing? Dylan and I have signed up for Rock ‘n Roll Raleigh Half Marathon April 12th so I wanted to fill you in on our training plan leading up to it. The two of us have started with about a 5mile base.

For Thursday speed work, use the first mile as a warm-up and last mile as a cool down. The middle portion of the run do some sort of pick-ups. For example, 1min hard, 30second easy jog till you have completed the entire middle portion of the workout. The purpose of this day is to get your legs turning over quickly and engage those fast twitch fibers.

So who else is training for a half marathon these days? What race do you have on the calendar? Comment below to let me know!

Happy Running Y’all!
