This training plan is designed specifically for those runners looking to break 2 hours in a half marathon. In the Fall of 2010, this exact plan helped over 200 runners across the country achieve this goal. You should be capable of starting out at 25 miles per week and will slowly progress to a peak of 45 miles per week. You will slowly advance both your volume and pace so you will reach race day ready to finish with a time of sub 2:00 without getting hurt in the training process. This plan implements race specific tempo runs and shorter speed workouts. The short speed workouts will help improve your speed and, with the short rest, also advance your stamina. The tempo runs will slowly progress your ability to run at goal race pace while remaining aerobic and increase your endurance, all while keeping you healthy. All slow runs should be completed at 10:10 to 10:40 pace or slower. A good rule of thumb is that you can never run too slowly on easy days, but you can easily run too fast.
