Ready for a big challenge? This is a 20-week plan designed to take you from "zero" to the half marathon distance, building your endurance (& your confidence as you race several 5k and 10k races along the way) as you build toward finishing 13.1 miles/21 km! This plan focuses purely on DISTANCE-BUILDING with an emphasis on EASY effort running or run-walk. In order to be successful with this plan, it's recommended you already be able to complete 1-2 miles/2-3 km at any pace.


This plan contains 4 runs per week and 1 day of cross-training. The beginning weekly volume is 5 miles/7.5 km/1hr25 per week and peaks at 24 miles/39 km/4hr30 per week.


This plan contains 3 VERSIONS of the 20-week schedule: miles, kilometers, and time-based. This plan also contains a 4-week post-race recovery schedule, a Race Day planner worksheet, recommended warm-up & cooldown routines, core exercises and lower body strength training exercises, information on goal setting/pace calculators, hydration, fueling, and more!


This plan is a downloadable PDF.
