Half Schedule


Okay all you experts out there, how does this look? Is it a good schedule to follow? Do I need to change anything? This is one I liked best.  I found it here http://www.halhigdon.com/halfmarathon/novice.htm
I changed just a few things to work with my 10k and 5k schedule. My official start date is May 31st!!!

Make sure and "TUNE" in for tomorrows post ;)

I've used Hal Higdon's plans as my training plans for halfs and fulls and they've worked really well for me. I usually do two rest days a week, but that's mostly because I do best on four days of running rather than five. I also think I tweaked it a bit and did more than 10 miles for my last long run, but you can wait and see how the training goes for you.

Mine's similar - and so far it's working for me! You get 2 thumbs up from me!

hi!
for some reason your blog wasn't coming up on my blogroll...hmmm...

anyway, cool that you're doing a half! i think this looks fine. my one caveat would be is to find a friend/ person who is also doing it to train with. you may already have that, but just wanted to say that;-)

Looks good! Good luck

I am guessing you got this from Hal Higdon! I used the Jeff Galloway run/walk plan for my first half marathon. And, I didn't run more than 3 days a week. I think if you run a couple short runs a week and then a long run each week, that is enough! Especially if you are doing other forms of cross training. What i really liked about the Jeff Galloway plan is that the long runs alternated every other week... I didn't really pay attention to actually using a run/walk method, but just walked when I needed to.

Lindsay,
I saw you on Good Things Utah this morning and I just had to look up your blog and congratulate you. We graduated the same year--Alissa Payne (Blunck) I don't know if you remember me or not, but I just wanted to let you know you are a great inspiration and I'm glad you and your family are doing well. Good luck on the half marathon. I did one last year (using this training schedule) and I think it is quite the accomplishment! Good Luck!

You may already do this, but I'm a big fan of stretching after every workout. Your muscles are warm and loose so it's the best time to increase flexibility.

I'm not a runner so I can't comment on the training schedule, but good luck! I can't wait to hear how it turns out. :)

Your plan looks great! I am excited to be running Hobble Creek together! We'll have to be sure to meet up. I am really excited to "know" a few people running it this year. Last year I crossed the finish, grabbed some food and headed to my car because my hubby was working, my girls were with a sitter, and I didn't know any other runners.

This is the exact program I used to train for my half. It worked like a charm. There were even some days I had to take off because of icy weather and still did well.

Good luck! And thanks for coming by to see me!

I'm sure you're well into it now, but I used that same training plan when I trained for my half. It was awesome!

Thanks for the webbie for training guides. I'm going to compare this one with mine and the other that another commentor suggested. :) p.s, your blog is so cute! every little thing on here is decorated so nicely.
