Couch To Half Marathon: The Ultimate Training Plan For Beginners

Let me guess, you’ve signed up for a half marathon. Maybe it was a bet, a selfless act to raise money for charity, or a big wake-up call to go from couch to half marathon via a life-changing journey.

Whatever the reason, tell yourself you can do this. All it takes is commitment, time, and of course effort. This isn’t 5k. A half marathon is a big deal – treat the challenge with respect!

How Fit Do You Need To Be?

The half marathon plan starts from zero with run/walk sessions where you alternate running and walking – gradually increasing the run intervals. It eases you into running.

How Long Does It Take?

The standard Couch to Half Marathon Plan takes 16 weeks but there's a 12 week plan if you're already reasonably fit from other sports - or you're rapidly running out of time for your half marathon deadline.

It's Always Best To Train Properly

And get to the finish line in the best possible shape - injury free and ready for your next challenge!

The Plan Is Split Into 3 Sections

Start with Couch to 5K, then progress to a 10K and finally build up to your main target the Half Marathon.
