The Half Marathon Training Plan that Works
In a recent post on his blog, fitness coach Scott Cawthon shares a plan he shares with his clients.
The plan is a mixture of cardio, strength training, and agility training.
Here’s how it works.
Cawthons goal is to build up a strong base of strength, flexibility, and endurance in the last 12 weeks of a marathon race.
That means staying hydrated, maintaining a good workout routine, and focusing on the basics like breathing, heart rate, and breathing patterns.
Caws goal is not to run an ultra-marathon.
In fact, the majority of the plan is geared toward running a 5k race at about 30 miles per hour.
Cawths goal is a marathon.
But in order to get there, he says he’s going to have to start training for it first.
“My goal is just to build that base of muscle and strength,” Caws wrote in the post.
“If I get that base, then I can start to develop my aerobic capabilities and my ability to get up and run faster.
If I don’t get that, I won’t be able to do what I love to do, which is to run a marathon.”
In Cawthy’s case, his goal is the 1:07 marathon.
“I have to keep working on getting stronger, and I have to work on improving my aerobic abilities,” he said.
“And that’s why I’m working on this plan.
I’m trying to get my base of muscles and strength and strength.
I’ve already done a lot of cardio work, so now I’m going to do more of it.”
Cawthy says that for the first 12 weeks, he’ll do a 1:25 marathon at about 26 miles per second.
After that, he’s looking for 1:10 and 1:15, which are both 1:05 and 1.10.CAWTHON’S TRAIN CARCADEMONDALE, Ill.
(AP)The first step in building the base of power is to start with running with the intention of training for the race.
Cayton, who is based in the Midwest, says he started by training for an ultra marathon in 2015.
He did his first half marathon in 2017 and is hoping to finish the next two.
Caws goal, however, is to do a full marathon.
He says he’ll start training at the end of the year.
“It’s not the goal of a full marathon, but to get the base up there,” Caw thos coach said.
Cays training plan will include cardio, endurance training, strength and agility work.
He’ll also work on a variety of running technique that Cawtens athletes use to get out of a jam and start a run.
Cavallaro has been running professionally since 2012, and he is the founder of the Blue Belt Marathon Club, which trains and organizes the elite field of marathoners.
The club has trained more than 1,000 runners and has hosted a number of world class marathoners, including Eliud Kipchoge and Dan Martin.
“The thing that we’re looking for is someone that is very fit, with good aerobic capacity, who has a good base of cardiovascular and strength strength,” Cavallaro said.
“So, for us, that’s not just a marathoner, but a guy that is fit and healthy, and has good aerobic capability.
So we think that that’s the way to go.
That’s the goal.”
Cavalliaro said he’s been running for almost five years, and after training for half a dozen marathons, he thinks he’s got the physical fitness and technique he needs to get a full race out of the way.
“For me, it’s all about endurance and power.
If you can get that down and be fast enough, that allows you to do things like sprinting, jumping, and running.
And if you can do that, then you have a really good base,” he added.”
If you can also do it with a little bit of recovery, that makes it a lot easier to get into a good rhythm, and that allows the legs to be able go out and really have a good training session and get your muscles and muscles going,” he continued.
Caveat emptorCawthanos coach says the goal is also to get rid of the mental fatigue that comes with the race, which Caw said can be especially tough when you are racing for the world title.
“When you’re doing it for the whole year, it gets very tough,” Cawn said.
Cawns goal is focused on staying motivated, and not having a mental breakdown during the race that can derail your race.
“That’s where I think most people get themselves in trouble, and it’s the thing that really separates most people from running,” CAW said.
As for what to do when the race comes, Caw
