Plan developed by Mindy Solkin, owner and head coach of The Running Center in New York City.

This week’s long run will take you just short of a half-marathon (12 miles). Don’t worry! You’ve trained your body to prepare for these longer distances. Take it at a moderately intense pace — one that you can hold for the full distance.

Total weekly distance: 25 miles
