How to train for a half marathon is based a number ofissues, but here we’ll focus on just two. To start with have you managed a half marathon in the past and the second thing is this your first half marathon? In essence if you’ve run a half marathon before, your intention may not be to simply to finish the race instead you’ll be looking at improving your time and with any luck getting further up the finishers list. If you’ve never run one before your goal may be to just go around in one piece without needing to rest. Just forget about particular finishing times or keeping up a certain speed, your ultimate goal ought to be purely to just finish the race. It’s crucial that you enjoy the feelings and sensations of the race ambiance and prove to yourself you can do it. Don’t make your first ever half marathon the one which you’d choose to forget.
