I am a novice runner and below is my running plan to achieve Half-marathon distance:
Mon - Rest Tue - 3km Wed - 5km Thur - 5km Friday - Cross training Sat. - Long Run(16km) Sun. - Rest /Cross training
Last week my long run was 15km and the week before it was 14km. I am planning to only increase the long run distance (Saturday) by up to 10% every week till I reach half marathon distance. Is this plan okay to reach half-marathon or do I need to increase my mileage during week days?
Note: I ran my debut Half marathon lately with time 1:40:08(pace is 4.44min/km) .I followed the below plan ,
Monday - rest Tuesday - Easy-6km Wednesday. - Tempo 12km Thursday. - Easy 6km Friday. - Cross train(cycling + swimming) Saturday. - 22km(increased my distance 10% every week till I reached 22km) Sunday. - Recovery run (2km jogging)
