Introduction to Beginner Half Marathon Schedule: click here
This eight week schedule is meant for the intermediate runner who already runs 10-12 km regularly but wants to take on the challenge of running his/her first half marathon. Our goal race is the beautiful and challenging Jerusalem half marathon on March 27th. The schedule requires a fair amount of committment and consists of a 4 day a week training program which incorporates a gradual mileage buildup and some hill workouts to best prepare for the hilly Jerusalem course. The schedule calls for doing two of the four weekly workouts on a treadmill but if you don't have access to a treadmill, you can simply run the workouts outside. It is preferable to do some of these workouts on a softer surface such as the many beautiful trails right in our backyard, in order to reduce the pounding on your legs. The schedule is designed to build your endurance base in a healthy and gradual fashion such that you line up on March 27th in the shape of your life.
