  • Improve your speed and endurance
  • Recover from a running injury
  • Reach your goals, including setting a PR
  • Cross the finish line with a smile on your face

Training Schedules:

The purpose of these training schedules are to help you successfully finish the Zeitgeist Half Marathon with a smile on your face.  They were written for the beginner/novice half marathoner.  We assume you work out, train, run or walk at least 3 times per week and that you have completed several 3-5 mile runs/walks in the past month.

The Schedules are mileage-based rather than time based.  They provide for 4-5 run/walks per week.  It can be reduced to as few as 3X per week (Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday).  We recommend an athlete build up to, and complete at least one 11 mile run/walk two weeks before Zeitgeist.
