Is it possible to train for and run a ½ marathon when only doing 2 training runs a week?

Isn’t that craziness?   Can it really work?

YES!  It is possible to complete a half marathon without killing your body or spending loads of time on training runs!

YES! It is possible to be fit, prepared, and ready to run a half marathon in 12 weeks, just 90 days, doing just 2 training runs a week! In fact, in this half marathon training program you will not run over 10 miles at any time and you will be race ready to run 13.1 miles successfully and with less wear and tear on your body on race day!

The secret is 3 key ingredients:

  1. Longer runs at your Half Marathon Target Heart Rate (HMTHR) during training.
  2. Speedwork to toughen you up for the late miles of a ½ marathon, largely through intervals.
  3. Using HIIT cross-training workouts or alternative cardio like cycling in-between runs.

Together, this combination saves you time, prepares your whole body, lessens wear and tear, and fits a busy lifestyle.

The book covers the science and strategy behind the training and gives you a complete guide including how to determine your half marathon target heart rate, HIIT workout options, and a weekly planner for the entire 12 weeks so that you have everything needed to train for and complete a half marathon successfully on 2 training runs a week.

Available on Amazon.com in print with Prime shipping and Kindle ebook version.

If you have struggled with a lack of time to invest and/or injuries from running too much and too long, this program is for you!

Note, this is not a couch-to-half training program.  It would be best if you had a base fitness level of being able to run at least a 5K prior to the start of this 12-week training program.

The material covers a daily plan (including Google Sheet access for your own tracking) for every day of the 12 week half marathon training plan.  You will see it gradually increases your long run, works at your speed through the interval training, and allows enough time for body recovery to prevent injuries all the while saving you time and wear from not running every day!
