Fall 2019 Marathon & Half Marathon Training
Many coaches and athletes agree that 16 weeks is a good amount of time to properly prepare for a marathon, while 10 to 12 weeks is usually sufficient for a half.
In all cases, building upon the aerobic base you’ve hopefully maintained throughout the spring will be followed with a number of specific training phases – speed, strength and endurance – that each last several weeks. Finally, the two to three weeks before race day are reserved for the taper, a time that focuses on rest and recovery.
