The following schedule is written as a guide for both beginner and more experienced half-marathoners. Beginners should currently be able to comfortably run 20 to 25 miles per week. If you need to take a few weeks building to this mileage, make sure you schedule the time to do so.
In both cases, we’ve included suggested easy run volumes. If you’re comfortable handling a higher mileage total, feel free to run on the optional rest days or add mileage to the easy runs. Just remember the critical component of these schedules is the workouts. Make sure you’re not running too long or fast on your easy days to complete the workouts as scheduled.
