  1. So amazing to see your dedication to take on the half marathon! 🙂
    I’ve never even tried a 10k before, so maybe that first, for me! ❤️

    This is really helpful for me, as I have just signed up to my first-ever half marathon and am slightly terrified! At the moment I’m doing 1 long run a week, in between my gym classes. I’ll make sure I do a few more runs in the week too then :) I hope your training goes well! xx

    I’ve done two halfs and I’d love to do another. Distance days were my favourite. I hated my interval days but those are integral in increasing your cardio capacity so I stuck it out and had really decent results. Seeing your plan has me excited to sign up for another one in the future! Next time I hope to follow the Run Less, Run Faster method. My goal at the end of this year was to run the Dopey challenge at Disney but my low iron won’t allow for that kind of training. When I’ve recovered a bit I can’t wait to jump back into it though! NOTHING like training for a big goal like a half or full marathon :). Also – get yourself some beet juice. Look up the benefits for distance running!! Haha, seriously! Just don’t take too much at once, trust me.

    Hi Amanda, I was wondering if a newbie to running can also follow this half marathon training plan. I did do high school cross country for one semester (3 months) 2 years ago and have not ran since then. I can do 3 miles max right now and I do not know if increasing the mileage within 2 weeks is doable without harming the body. Thanks for your help in advance!

    Your races sound gorgeous! And that first one sounds FAST, holy crap! A 3000 ft decline is no joke. I ran my first half this past fall after ~4 months of training. The extra training was great because I could keep my long runs around the same mileage for several weeks and “settle in” to the distance before cranking it up. This was especially important because I’m a trail runner and there’s no such thing as “flat” here. If you haven’t tried running trails already, you should mix some in! You live in a great area for it. :)

    I was planning my next half for April, but I’m currently recovering from a knee injury so that will have to wait. It’s a bummer since it’ll take a long time to work back to the ~2 hour runs I love so much, but I’m getting close to being able to start again. I miss my long runs more than I can describe!

    That’s great! You are an inspiration. I can’t run to save my life and to think about a marathon just gave me an anxiety attack! Lol 😂 All joking aside, this is a great plan and goals. You will do well because you have heart and you are determined. I like your energy and it will take you far. Rooting for you in spirit. You got this! Happy weekend!

  10. […] Lately, when scrolling my Instagram, I’ve noticed a lot more people sharing their fitness routines. They tell us about their favorite exercise gear, favorite workouts, what they love to eat and why. These people seem to love fitness, they’ve found what works for them, and constantly have advice to share with their followers on how they got to where they are (hey, I’m guilty of it, too). […]

    Excited for you and your training! Half Marathon distance is perfect for us moms, at least in my opinion. Have you ever checked out Another Mother Runner? Blog, training plans, podcast. I bet you’d really enjoy it. Best of luck!
