Cleveland Half Marathon Training Starts Now!

Well, the time has come – Cleveland half marathon training is here!

At the beginning of the year, it seemed like I had so much time to kill and that it wouldn’t be training time any time soon. But suddenly, it’s here.

Of course I’m getting over a cold, so I’m not at peak running level, but I’d rather feel this way now as opposed to race day. What’s my training look like? I am a big fan of Hal Higdon’s plans, so I’ll be once again using his training program. Here’s a slightly modified version of what I’ll be doing:

Each week, I’ll share my training – how it went, what I actually ran, etc. My goals are to do the full training program and run my best. I’d love to do another sub-2 hour half marathon but I’m not sure how training will go this year. I’m not in as good shape as I was last time I ran a half marathon, my lack of sleep is real (see: 2 kids under 3) and I have been having a hard time finding enough time to run every morning (again, 2 young kids). But enough excuses – it’s training season! And here we go!

Some questions for you:

  • What are you training for?
  • What training program do you use?

Note: I am a Cleveland marathon ambassador! That means I get free race entry for me, and a free race entry to giveaway.

  1. Good luck with your half training. I am a big fan of Hal Higdon too. I use his plans for marathon training, but I usually just wing it for halfs. I ran Cleveland a few years ago and really liked it. Hope you do too!

  2. I did the RnR Cleveland a few years ago but now has been cancelled.

    I also have a few races I am looking forward to this year ( an 8K next month and a few half marathons). I work with a coach and just today signed up with her again. The weather is sucking the joy out of me and I haven’t been running consistently but excited to get back to it again.
