This half marathon program follows a similar concept to the program created by the Furman Institute of Running and Scientific Training but with additional resources and exercises we highly recommend including during your journey to race day.
This program is based on the evidence that one can run a successful half marathon by running only three times a week with the proper program and intensity. Paces are based on your current best 10k race pace. Workouts can be in any order BUT one rest day between runs is needed. It is highly recommended that “Cross Training” days be used for strength training but easy runs, cycling, or playing a sport are fine.
