IMG_4357 Half Marathon Training Program

Are you registered to run a Half Marathon race or thinking about doing a 21km race?

A half marathon is a great distance to focus on if new to running or hoping to achieve a new personal best. 

When you sign up for your program you will receive a specific and periodised half marathon training program.

Whether it is your first event, or you are trying to beat an old personal best, your needs will be catered for. Your DA Endurance Half Marathon Training Program will consist of more than just running exercises. It will also factor in recovery, nutrition and interesting drills to ensure your training isn’t a chore. Not only this, your program will help manage your workload to avoid injury and give you the best chance of feeling great come the day of the event. It is one thing to participate in an event, it is another to go into it prepared, ready to give it your best shot.

Accountability is key and this is where many online training programs don’t deliver. Typically you will select your program, feel inspired for a while then motivation and commitment to the program starts to drop off. Using the DA Endurance Half Marathon Training Program you will continue to get the support you need. You will receive weekly e mails enquiring about your progress to make sure you are on task and your program is suiting you well. It’s important to us that you arrive at the start line with the confidence of knowing you have trained to the best of your ability.
