Stroud Half Marathon training schedules

Here are a couple of suggested schedules for runners looking to run the half in 2:00 hours or 2:15. As ever, these schedules should not be treated as rigid plans but a structure to build your training around. They incorporate the essential long, slow distance run at weekends and a mixture of hills, speedwork, fartlek and tempo during the week for variety and interest. The fourth session is usually cross training (swimming, cycling, walking, gym or Parkrun) and the three rest days are very important for recovery - particularly as the mileage grows.

Stroud Half Marathon training

It is 12 weeks to Stroud Half - traditionally time to dust off the training schedules and start to build the mileage gradually to peak on the 21st Oct and enjoy a great race. Here is a sensible schedule for those relatively new to Half Marathons or perhaps running their first Half this year.
