Erin, I am going to be running a half marathon on June 2 and would love if you could give me some training advice here for the last month of training ( how many speed workouts I should be doing, how many long runs, how long of runs etc.)
Also, any recs on good shoes to buy?!
The last month of half marathon training I would break it down like this:
-1-2 speed workouts a week is great
-If you do two speed workouts, do one long interval workout and one short interval workout
-Long interval workout example: Warm up 10 minutes, run 3x10 minutes at 75-85% effort with 1-2 minutes jog recovery between sets
-Short interval workout example: Warm up 10 minutes, run 5x5 minutes (3 minutes 75-85% effort and 2 minutes jog recovery)
