Half Marathon Program

Week 8 | Half Day 55

Distance Run – Race Weekend

Time: Short 25-30 minute pre-race run or RACE DAY 13.1 miles.

Finally! All your hard work is about to pay off. If you are racing today good luck! Arrive at least an hour before your race time to park, register, and warmup. The bigger the race, the more time and logistics are needed so ready your race packet!

If your race is tomorrow…plan for a shake out run with just a few “engine revs” to keep the legs sharp and race ready! Plan on spending the rest of the day OFF your feet as much as possible with something hydrating to sip on at all times.

Distance: Short 25-30 minute pre-race run or RACE DAY 13.1 miles

IF you are NOT racing:

Plan on an 8-9 mile run!
