This 3-Week, 12-Workout training plan was designed for low-mileage runners who are in the early weeks of preparing for a half marathon or marathon. The program is based on the 80/20 Rule, as described in coach Matt Fitzgerald’s book 80/20 Running.


Each week you will do approximately 80 percent of your total running at low intensity (Zones 1 and 2) and 20 percent at moderate (Zone 3) to high intensity (Zones 4 and 5).


Cutting-edge research shows that runners of all ability and experience levels improve the most when they train in this “mostly slow” fashion.


IMPORTANT: You should be comfortable running 4 times per week for up to 7 miles or more before you start the plan.
