Contents
  • Contents note: 1.An Incredible Journey -- What happens when you decide to become a runner? What questions should you ask? Is a half a reasonable goal? This book tells all -- 2.Roots -- If the half marathon can't trace its historical routes to Pheidippides, then how and where did the first 13.1-mile races get their start? -- 3.Ready to Run -- Running is a basic sport, the simplest, the easiest. Nevertheless, you need to know a few things when you aspire to become a half-marathoner -- 4.First Steps -- Once you take those few tottering steps out the door, what are you liable to encounter? Tips for those new to the half and for experienced runners, too -- 5.Why We Run -- Runners have embraced the half marathon as their favorite event. What is special about running 13.1 miles? -- 6.Hard/Easy -- Run hard one day. Run easy the next day. This is a formula that works for those in the front of the pack, those midpack, and those at the end of the pack as well --
  • Contents note continued: 7.Immediate Achievement -- How does training affect your body? What changes can you expect when you decide to train for a half marathon? The science of fitness -- 8.Base Training -- You now hold motivation in your hands: this book. Give me the next 12 weeks, and I will make you a runner -- 9.Picking a Program -- Is there a perfect program that will prepare you for a half marathon? There is. The only problem is finding it -- 10.Novice Training -- My most popular half marathon training programs are, unapologetically, novice 1 and novice 2. Beginners love them, and so do many experienced runners -- 11.Moving Upward -- Hope to improve in the half? The obvious method is to take a half step upward from novice to intermediate. But only a half step! -- 12.The Pinnacle -- If you want to achieve success, you need to master the arts of speed and endurance and blend them into a single training program -- 13.Half-Marathoner Walking --
  • Contents note continued: Is walking a half marathon equal to running a half marathon? It is in my book. Walkers are out on the course longer and deserve our respect -- 14.HM3 -- One of my most popular programs has been marathon 3, with that number of runs a week. Now I have a similar cross-training-based program for half-marathoners -- 15.Tween -- Just finished your race? Want to do more? Is a 12-week buildup necessary for every half marathon? Not really -- 16.Do-It-Yourself Training -- Figure out the key sessions you need for your program. Then start plugging them into your schedule
