As promised, here is an early heads-up about my forthcoming (cue trumpet fanfare!!)...
10K to Half Marathon Training Plan!!!
I don't want to bombard you with too much information in one go, so expect more posts about this over the next couple of weeks. I will be giving more detail about how this plan was derived, and how best to personalise it 😊
Here is a summary of points to note at this stage - feel free to post questions below:
★ I have chosen to introduce this plan as an experiment, so I will be starting it myself on Monday, December 3rd with the aim of an actual HM event on Sunday, March 24th.
★ I will post regular updates on my progress. I invite you to either join along with me, or just follow to see how I get on! You do not have to end it on an actual race - that is optional!
★ This plan is designed as a set of TWELVE 9-Day Cycles. This is to provide a gentle ride for beginners from 10K to Half Marathon, with the option of having two non-running days between runs.
★ There are, however, options for more experienced runners to increase their challenge.
★ The total 12 cycles amount to roughly 15 and a half weeks.
★ There are options to run 3 times, 4 times, or 5 times per cycle. These choices amount on average to 2 times, 3 times, or 4 times per week respectively.
★ The plan includes plenty of cross training, and also a strength and a speed session each cycle.
★ Follow the link below to a Google Sheet containing details about the plan. This shows the 9-day cycles laid out with all the different options. You will also see an example of what the plan looks like week by week, ending with a Half Marathon on a Sunday (since most of them are on Sundays):
