The right thing Training improves not only locomotor system and endurance, but optimized also the metabolic activity. An optimal training program for a half-marathon consists of many long, initially slower runs, supplemented with some speed intervals. Beginners need a lead-time of at least seven months. Ambitious recreational athletes who run regularly, can begin up to six weeks prior to the intended half marathon with the intensification phase.

Units are useful by beginning 40 to 45 minutes, about four times a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday).
The duration of the race increased steadily so that in week four 60-70 minutes can be run. Strength and endurance improve it constantly. 4 X 400 m intervals with a walking break between sections are suitable for the speed runs. Races of varying length and intensity is important, to vary during the week. At the end of this phase, after about four to five weeks, athletes can definitely use the opportunity at 5 to 10 kilometers races experience the first autumn race and test their proficiency.
