Marathon and Half Marathon Training – Week 2

We’ll be getting together for our second long run this weekend, January 11th and 12th.

Where: The Shelby Bottoms Nature Center ( Map)

When: Saturday and Sunday

Full Marathon – Meet at 7:30 a.m.
Half Marathon – Meet at 8:00 a.m.

The Workouts

Half Marathon:

Standard Plan – 55 minutes
Advanced Plan – 70 minutes

Full Marathon:

Standard Plan – 8 miles
Advanced Plan – 12 miles

Effort

Keep in mind, these first three weeks should be easy and conversational. You should be able to speak a sentence and continue breathing easily and steadily – nothing so hard you can say one word at a time or less.

Tips

It’s very important that you do other runs throughout the week. We offer a Wednesday night run at 6pm at the corner of 11th and Holly. You can also join us during this training phase on Thursdays at 6pm at the same location for a structured workout with speed intervals and hill repeats. On other days, ask a friend to join you for a run. If you’re meeting someone, you’re more likely to stick with the plan and run!

See you all Saturday or Sunday! ENFL!
