A week-by-week coaching plan that can transform anyone into a successful half-marathoner.
From setting a goal and buying the right shoes to crossing the finish line and recovering after the race, this book guides readers step-by-step through the entire process of running a half marathon. The author details every aspect of distance training including hydration and nutrition, running posture and form, stretching, hill workouts, speed workouts and pre-race tapering. The book offers three training programs: one for new runners who have the simple goal of finishing, another for casual runners who want to raise their game and a third program for aimed at daily runners who are ready to compete in their first organized race.
Includes a detailed schedule of running times and rest periods for every day of the 14-week training period
