20 Jan Training schedule for my half marathon
Some people train without a certain schedule, but for me following a schedule is really helpful to stay tuned. This time I want to finish the 13.1 in less than two hours. This goal seems a little bit ambitious right now, because I’m still struggling with knee pain and a very resistent cold.
I still try to follow my training plan, which I found on the webpage of runnersworld.
The plan schedules 4 workouts and 3 rest days per week. The workouts vary in their intensity. On Sunday you are usually supposed to do a slow long distance run. In between you switch between relaxed endurance runs, interval runs or speed plays. The last two are aiming for becoming faster.

In addition to this running workouts I really, really need to follow a daily stretching routine, because I think that my knee problems are a result of shortened musculature in my legs.
