I am officially 12 weeks out from my second half marathon, and was looking for a good training schedule to use this go around. Last time I used the Hal Higdon’s Beginner training schedule. While it was a great introduction to run training, it was pretty much all running (I know I know… I’m doing a half marathon). While I love to run, I know myself and I will burn out and quit if I don’t get some alternative workouts in.
So, I’ve created my own training schedule which is adapted from the Hal Higdon calendar! It incorporates active recovery/stretching, cross training and strength training. I also bumped it down from four days of running to three, but the cardio days will make up for it.
The awesome thing about this schedule is it uses Beachbody on Demand workouts on the non-run days, and spans over 20+ different programs! No getting bored here. With the launch of the All-Access Beachbody on Demand pass, I thought it would be a perfect time to capitalize and try out all the workout options available to me.
