Half-marathon training plan developed by Mindy Solkin, owner and head coach of The Running Center in New York City.
You’re still only running twice this week but picking up the distance a bit. Keep that same 60 percent intensity level (about a 12:30/mile pace) — comfortable enough to talk or sing the National Anthem, but you can hear your breathing.
Total weekly distance: 3 to 4 miles
Week 2 Training Calendar
Tuesday Run 1.5 to 2 miles (60% effort)
Saturday Run 1.5 to 2 miles (60% effort)
NEXT: WEEK 3
