New* ** training for a half marathon for the first time


Recommended Posts

Where are you fitness wise with respect to running? Have you ran before? What is your goal with respect to the half marathon? (Starting from a state of poor/low physical fitness to running a half marathon in 14 weeks is a huge step if you can't run 5K currently; a run/walk approach might work for the half marathon. I'm training for a half marathon in the fall and I'm targeting an under 2 hour pace.)

Diet - track what you eat and keep the calories at or below the daily allowance needed to lose weight. I log what I eat in MyFitnessPal. The app helps establish how much you can eat depending upon your life style (active,sedentary), your target weight and the date.
