Is two months enough time to train for a half marathon?
With spring races just around the corner, if you don't have a race picked out yet, there's still time. Here's a simple half marathon training plan to get you ready in just two months.
Long runs on the weekends:
Week 1: 4 miles
Week 2: 5 miles
Week 3: 6 miles
Week 4: 7 miles
Week 5: 8 miles
Week 6: 9 miles
Week 7: 10 miles
Week 8: Easy 4 Miles
During the week days: 4 shorter runs 3 to 5 miles, increasing the week day mileage each week. 2 rest days per week (your preference week day/ weekend).
While a plan is always good, we do believe its always best to listen to your body and adjust as needed. Also with this plan you can always add in any other cross training workouts.
We would say this plan would be good for the everyday runners doing an average of 20 miles or more a week. It is not the best plan for beginners.
