I know many people reading this blog have trained on or are interested in the Hansons Marathon Method, so I just wanted to make sure you all know there is now a Hansons Half Marathon Method book!

Hansons Half Marathon Method book

Velopress was kind enough to send me a copy of this book to review, so stay tuned for that soon!   I’ll also be giving away a copy of the book to one of you!  I plan to post my review & giveaway sometime during the month of April, so check back.

If you haven’t picked up one of the Hansons method books (the marathon method or half marathon method) I highly recommend doing so.   You can find the plan on their website but I think reading the book cover to cover before taking on this plan is a good idea just to ensure that the philosophy and approach align with your goals.   There is so much great content in the books, and I found myself referencing the marathon method book weekly while I was training on the plan.

Those of you who followed my Chicago marathon training may be wondering whether I plan to train for a half marathon on the Hansons plan as well.   I am considering giving it a try for a fall half marathon.  I’m doing a half marathon in June but am focused on getting a strength training routine in place so I just can’t do six days a week of running right now as well.   That being said, I am a huge believer in the philosophy behind this plan and fully intend to give the half marathon plan a try at some point.

What’s your half marathon training plan on choice?    Anyone tried Hansons Half Marathon Method?

      No problem, Jill! I have a feeling that many will use this method as their intro to Hansons (vs. using the marathon plan). The structure seems to be very similar, but the mileage slightly different.

    Yay! So excited they have a half plan and I cannot wait to hear about it! I am sure you will rock your half, since you totally crushed the Chicago Marathon!

      Hey Patty! I’ll be giving away a copy of the book (should be going up in a few days) if you want to hold out and enter to win a copy! I really like this book – and I think it has a much broader appeal than their marathon method.
