Not sure if I should be creating a new thread here, but I didn't see one that was directly related to the topic at hand. Basically, I'm looking for some advice/feedback on the Hal Higdon Half Marathon 3 training program. Specifically, I'm wondering if anyone on here has tried it, and how successful/unsuccessful it was.
A bit of background on myself. I ran my first half in Barcelona earlier this year, with no structured training routine, other than a bit of residual GAA fitness, and 1-2 runs per week, where I just added on more km's each time. Looking back on it, and from what I now know, this was a naive way of approaching it, but I completed it in 1:57 which was decent enough considering my training. I now want to take a more structured, systematic approach, with a proper training plan - in an effort to beat 1:50, or at least get under 1:55. I've been looking at training plans online, and came across the Hal Higdon one. It appeals to me as, due to work commitments (mostly travel), I can't train 5-6 times a week, as most conventional training plans recommend. 3 times a week is perfect for me, but I would appreciate any feedback or opinions on the plan.
Thanks in advance!
