So you still have time to prepare for the race, many choose to travel a certain number of kilometers a week, some will tell you a quantity and others a different amount, however the number of kilometers per week to prepare a half marathon will depend on the level of fitness you have and the experience you have as a broker. The volume of kilometers, as is to be expected, is less than for the marathon, but not necessarily half.
To run a half marathon well, enjoying the race and without suffering more than necessary, it is very important that we master the smallest distances, in this case, the 10K. Being able to run 10 kilometers, comfortably, feeling comfortable with distance and controlling our pace and our pulsations is very important when launching for a longer race.
Plan your career and establish the rhythms to follow
If you plan to go through your first marathon you should not expect to arrive first, third or tenth, but simply to cross the finish line, it is necessary that you establish a maximum time in which you would like to finish it so that you do not miss the hands. For this, the most useful thing is to plan in advance what are the rhythms that you are going to take at each moment of the race taking into account the altimetric profile of the same and also your physical state.
The most common strategy in a half marathon is usually to use the first kilometers as a warm-up to later maintain a comfortable pace during the first half of the race. From about 10 kilometers you can start to press, and in the last two kilometers, you can give everything. Above all, do not get carried away by the exhilaration of the start and start the race faster than you have prepared, because it will pass the bill later.
