Half Marathon Race Training Schedule from
Half Marathon Plan

Running a Half marathon is a little more difficult than the 5, or 10K, and is often the step leading up to the "Marathon". Even if you are running and do not want to run a marathon anytime soon this is a decent little training schedule. I'm sure it doesn't take a genius to figure out that a Half marathon is half as long as a marathon. While the half may not sound or seem so glamorous it is often more than enough to push a man or woman to his or her limits. Assuming you are not an elite long distance runner and have elite long distance runner friends try asking someone if they feel like running 13miles with you this Saturday. It's not most Americans idea of a relaxing day.

How many miles are in a Half Marathon?

In a half marathon race there are 13.1 or 13 and a tenth miles. 1/2 Marathon = 13.1 miles.

A quick overview

Your body needs a few weeks or months (depending on age and prior level of activity) to acclimate to running long distances. Be sure not to overdue it, stay hydrated, and don't let injuries creep up on you. No one want's to spend 3 months training and not be able to run due to an injury.
