If you've mastered a 10K and typically run about 15 miles per week, this half-marathon training plan will take you right to the finish line of 13.1.

Each day, run the prescribed distance at the designated pace. For "conversation pace" you should run at a stride that you can handle having a conversation. This plan incorporates fartlek, hills, and tempo runs to increase your endurance, as well as strength training and cross-training to keep up your overall fitness. Stick to the plan and you'll gradually increase your mileage to help your first half feel like a breeze. Cross-train with an aerobic exercise besides running like cycling, swimming, eleptical, stair-climbing, or rowing.

Check out the calendar below for your complete training plan. (If you're printing the plan, be sure to use landscape layout for best resolution.)

Odit totam dolores velit et. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖
