Training Time Left:
A Half Marathon is a great way to increase your fitness, push past a plateau, learn what your body is capable of doing and challenge yourself. Running a Half Marathon may seem impossible at the moment but with the right training program it is doable.
A good way to get started is to walk a Half Marathon. We invite you to walk the Reggae Half Marathon by trying this 12-week training program.
Walk at a comfortably brisk pace. You should be able to carry out a conversation with a little bit of effort.
Cross Training Days
Do any activity that works your legs in a different way than walking does such as bicycling, swimming, yoga.
Walk Form Days
Practice this drill after your 30, 40 or 50-minute walk: increase your speed to a challenging pace for 30 seconds. Follow with 1 minute of easy walking. Repeat four times, and then cool down.
Yes, YOU CAN WALK the Reggae Half Marathon! Get ready for a fun and life changing experience!
