Abstract

Apply It! By reading this article, the following key points will be reinforced: When helping train a runner for a half marathon personal record, increasing weekly mileage gradually is the foundation. High-intensity runs should be incorporated after establishing a foundation but should only be 7% to 10% of total weekly mileage. Moderately high-intensity runs (at/near race pace) should be incorporated after establishing a foundation but should only be 10% to 15% of total weekly mileage. Tapering, adequate nutrition and hydration, and inclusion of adequate recovery/rest are critical for a potential personal record performance.
