Training Plan
True Beginner Progression - C2HM (24 Weeks)

This plan is perfect for a person new to running, but looking to be able to complete a half marathon in six months. We take your from a run/walk beginning and build you up to be able to run 30 miles per week at your peak. Also included are times to run progressively longer races at key times. We start by having you complete a 5k race, then build to a 10k race, and finally your goal half marathon.

The plan comes with a structured workout feature and day to day pace guidance based on your goal time.

Run - 5k Race

Your goal is to run the whole way without stopping. I know this may be a big learning experience, but that's why we are doing it!

After the race, you can use our race equivalency chart (the stopwatch along the top of the page) to get an idea of where you are CURRENTLY. You may use it to start narrowing down some training paces before you do the 10k in several weeks.

Planned: 3.1 mi
