From the same makers of the #1 C25K Trainer app, Half Marathon Trainer follows the same successful recipe to create an easy simple 13.1 (21k) program, best suited for first-time half marathoners and those who are new to running. The program uses a blend of running and power walking in training and racing. You’ll soon be able to run-walk the entire half marathon.
This proven 14 week plan is designed for true beginner/novice runners who want to train for a half marathon, but have very little running experience. This run/walk program is perfect for newcomers, as the walk breaks help mentally break up the race into segments, so you can focus on one section at a time. These breaks help make the half/full marathon less grueling, as well as reduces the overall impact and risk of injury.
But don’t think that just because walking is involved that your time will be slower, or that you’re accomplishing less. Many veteran runners have posted personal best times after switching to this run walk method! By using a ratio of running and walking, you can manage your fatigue which gives you the muscle resource and mental confidence to handle the later parts of the race.
Slowly build strength and stamina, and the blend of walking and running together reduces the overall impact and risk of injury. By the end of the program, you will be READY for your 13.1 (21k) race!
Listen to your favorite music while you train and follow the 13.1 program’s convenient audio alerts. Along with voice/audio alerts and music controls on your headset, just press “start”, put your device in your pocket, and you are ready to go. Alerts will tell you when to warm-up, walk, run, cooldown, and when minute is left to give it your all.
