I’m not even sure I can run anymore, it’s been so long and yet I’ve been lured by the 5K, 10K, Half and full marathon escapades of my friends! So…guess what I’m doing? Yep! A half marathon. To help myself stay on track and accountable to the final goal, I put together the following plan.

The Plan

Since I’m not currently running, I’m taking a beginner’s approach. I’m starting slowly and where I say “Run” on the schedule, I’m actually allowing myself to run/walk/run/walk to get accustomed to the program. I hope you feel that you can adjust to where you personally are also. Additionally, I have the Piyo workouts so I am going to do those throughout the program as I feel the need. I expect that I will add piyo workouts here and there throughout the week to keep me limber. *Please note that this is the plan that I am using for my half-marathon training. If you are a beginning runner, use other resources to determine the ideal mileage increase for you.

Block 1

The main goal for this block is to establish a strong base. I’ve selected the strength building workouts from The Master’s Hammer and Chisel to really focus on strengthening my muscles so they’re prepared for the later blocks with increasing mileage.

Block 2

This block incorporates plyometrics and power movements to increase speed and power. This is to prepare for the next block which focuses on endurance.

Block 3

Endurance is the name of the game in this block. This is the final push to prepare for race day.

THE MASTER’S HAMMER AND CHISEL PROGRAM INCLUDES:

12 HARDCORE WORKOUTS ON 6 DVDS

Sagi and Autumn don’t mess around. These workouts are intense, but if you insist on feeling and looking incredible, grab your weights and a bench
and get to work.
