FIRST - Congratulations!!!
You are going to officially join the elite group of approximately 2 million people finish a half marathon annually in the United States.
More fun facts from Getnux: more than 60% of the 2million participants are women.
The average time for male finishers is 2:06:37 while female finishers have an average time of 2:16:02.
Additionally, 67% train for at least 3 months to prepare for their race.
85% use GPS watches to track training progress
73% incorporate strength training into their routine
61 % run with a partner
15 .6 % enter as part of relay teams
66 % pursue personal records when they participate in races
These facts show that not only is the sport popular but also that it has become increasingly competitive over recent years due to its growing number of dedicated athletes who strive towards achieving personal bests each year.
Get your shoes & other gear ready. (no cotton socks, hydration, etc.)
Follow St George Running Store, they always have great advice.
Get your friends to join you!
Or join meet up with the Running Group
(Do you think I should start one just for this group training for Snow Canyon?!?!)
Find a great 3 mile course - do a "race" on that course. Record all your data: pace, heart rate, how you felt. More details on 30 minute time trial here. (Be ready to see improve over the next 12-weeks!)
You may want to do *Lactate testing with PR Performance Lab, that will help you know your exact zones. More on that here.
Print the calendar - post were you can see it daily. Mark off each day to you. Make notes have how each run feels! If you have a watch -program the trainings into the watch.
Know this is a guideline - you do have not to follow it exact. If you like long runs on Sundays - do it. If you like Speed work on Mondays, do it.
You can move things around to make it all fit in your life!
Know that PR Performance Lab is here for you!
