COMOX VALLEY RV HALF MARATHON TRAINING PLANS

Beginner "Get Me to the Finish Line" Program (download pdf)

Congratulations on wanting to complete the Comox Valley Half Marathon on 19 March 2017. This is an amazing undertaking, and with the right training I know you can do it!

This program is designed for first-time half marathoners or recreational runners whose goal is to safely complete the 21.1 kilometer distance and still be able to smile for their finisher’s photo!

Assumptions:

  • You can already complete 8-10km in a training run 
  • You are ready to commit to running at least 4 days per week.
  • You engage in a core strengthening and stretching program to maintain good flexibility, stability, balance and body awareness (e.g. yoga, Pilates, foam rolling, high intensity interval training) 
  • You prioritize high quality, nutrient dense food and respect your body’s need to sleep and recover from hard training sessions.

Experienced "PB" Program (download pdf)

Congratulations on wanting to race the Comox Valley Half Marathon on 19 March 2017. This is a fantastic course to set a new personal best (PB)!

Assumptions:

  • You currently run ~4-5 times/week and have a good aerobic base
  • You can comfortably complete 14km in a training run or race. 
  • You engage in a core strengthening and stretching program to maintain good flexibility, stability, balance and body awareness (e.g. yoga, Pilates, foam rolling, high intensity interval training) 
  • You prioritize high quality, nutrient dense food and respect your body’s need to sleep and recover from hard training sessions.
