Description

Get ready for your first half marathon by training with Hal Higdon the best known running author and athlete. His training programs have helped thousands reach their running goals, and this half marathon app will help you get to the starting line with confidence.

Hal Higdon's many accomplishments include:

* Author of 35 books, including the best-selling Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide and a new novel, Marathon
* Completed over 111 marathons and has won four overall victories and numerous age-group firsts
* Holds the current M40 and M45 American records for the steeplechase

* Has contributed to Runner's World magazine longer than any other writer

ABOUT THE TRAINING PLAN - NOVICE 1
This Novice 1 Half Marathon Training Program is designed both for beginner runners who want to prepare for a 13.1-mile race, but also for experienced runners interested in a fail safe program that will help them to excel without making excessive demands on their time.

Novice 1 is designed for newcomers, individuals who have done very little or even no running before. If you are fit enough to finish the Week 1 long run of 4 miles--even if you have to walk the distance--Novice 1 will get you ready to complete a half marathon in 12 weeks.

Before starting to train for a half marathon, you need to possess a basic fitness level. If you are over age 35, you probably should see your doctor for a physical exam, but assuming no major health problems, most healthy people can train themselves to complete a 13.1-mile race.

The training plan assumes you have the ability to run 3 miles, three to four times a week. If that seems difficult, consider a shorter distance for your first race. You can try our best selling Ease into 5K app which will prepare you to run 3 miles three times a week.

* Twelve weeks long
* Run three days a week
* Cross train two days a week
* Rest two days a week
* Two regular runs a week + one long run each week
* Long runs range from 4 to 10 miles
* The plan finishes with the 1/2 marathon on race day

Because this app needs accurate location information, this app requires a device with a GPS antenna, therefore the app works with iPhone 3G, 3GS, iPhone 4, and 4GS and is not compatible with the iPod touch.

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Compatible with iOS 7.0, requires iOS 5.0 or greater.

Customer Reviews

Nice app overall

I've used this app for two half marathons. I loved it and think it's a great training tool. I'm using it once again for my 3rd half.
I do wish I could change the long run days or adapt to my schedule. Sometimes I have to change my cross or rest days to a run day and although the app allows you to log training independently, it doesn't let you show the training as a run (will still say rest day etc). Also wish the run calendar line showed the actual date, not just week & day. Finally, on my last run the gps wasn't calculating my distance. I've never had that issue before. I had to leave the app open and running (screen on) to keep it working. It was not like that before?? Totally drained the battery...maybe something in my settings is not right??
All in all a great training guide, the overall concept and journal are helpful. Some kinks, so $10 a little pricey, but it was worth it for me...a good training guide that helped me through my half marathons successfully.
