Winter Half Marathon Training ProgramBROOKS & FEETURES & GU X FLEET FEET 

Join the tens of thousands of people who challenge themselves every year to the fastest growing distance race in the country – the half marathon. This terrific 13.1 mile distance is challenging and yet achievable. Our programs target runners, run/walkers and walkers. We have an exceptional coaching staff to lead you in your training. Pace groups, speed work, and specific training plans will enable anyone who can currently run 5 miles to finish their first half marathon or improve over previous performances.

Whether you are a seasoned half marathoner or a first timer with the goal to finish, our half marathon program is designed to challenge, encourage, and to help you have a healthy training experience as you build up mileage and speed in preparation for the 13.1 Mile Race. Fleet Feet Sports Half Marathoners are broken into various pace groups based on running background as well as goals. These pace groups are designed to help you train in a safe and effective manner as you build up your base mileage.

Tuesday nights you will be challenged with a combination of hill work, form drills and speed workouts. Designed to help you run faster and more efficiently, you will be amazed with your improved overall fitness from these challenging and fun sessions. 

Saturday's distance runs will be done at a slower pace to increase the amount of time on your feet and to encourage quick recovery. Saturday long runs will be crucial to your success in the race as they help you to build up cardiovascular, muscular, and skeletal strength for the endurance to finish the entire event.

Benefits of Walking Training (adapted from the Mayo Clinic):
Physical activity doesn't need to be complicated.  Something as simple as a daily brisk walk can help you live a healthier live.  A few benefits from walking include: Maintaining a healthy weight, prevention or management of various conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes, helping strengthen bones and muscles, improving your mood, and improving your balance and coordination.

The faster, farther and more frequently you walk, the greater the benefits.  We want to empower you to become a regular walker and establish a regular routine to help you continue with the activity and new healthy behaviors.
