Get ready for your first Marathon by training with Hal Higdon the best known running author and athlete. His training programs have helped thousands reach their running goals, and this marathon app will help you get to the starting line with confidence. Hal Higdon's many accomplishments include: * Author of 35 books, including the best-selling Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide and a new novel, Marathon * Completed 111 marathons winning four overall as well as numerous age-group firsts * Holds the current M40 and M45 American records for the steeplechase * Is one of the founders of Round Runners Club of America * Has contributed to Runner's World magazine longer than any other writer ABOUT THE TRAINING PLAN - NOVICE 2 This Novice 2 Marathon Training Program is designed both for beginning runners who want to prepare for their first 26.2-mile race, but also for experienced runners interested in a fail safe program that will allow them to excel without making excessive demands upon their time. Novice 2 is designed for those who have been running a while, who may even have finished a 10K or half marathon, and the marathon presents the next step upward. There is slightly more mileage in Novice 2 versus Novice 1, just enough to guarantee a higher level of readiness come race day. Before starting to train for a marathon, you need to possess a basic fitness level. If you are over age 35, you probably should see your doctor for a physical exam, but assuming no major health problems, most healthy people can train themselves to complete a 26.2-mile race. The training plan assumes you have the ability to run 3 miles, three to four times a week. If that seems difficult, consider a shorter distance for your first race. You can try our best selling Ease into 5K app which will prepare you to run 3 miles three times a week. * Novice 2 Training Plan * Eighteen weeks long * Run four days a week * Cross train one day a week * Rest two days a week * Three regular runs a week + one long run each week * Long runs range from 6 to 20 miles * The plan finishes with the Marathon race day APP FEATURES * You can set Saturday or Sunday race day * Hal Higdon's voice will encourage you during your runs * Distance and pace automatically tracked with built in GPS * Metric units support * Training schedule at your fingertips * Set your training start date based on the race date * Home screen shows a visual indicator of your training progress * Select your own music and skip tracks without leaving the app * Half point alert, letting you know when to turn back * Share your workouts on Facebook and Twitter right from your app * Lock Buttons feature prevents accidental button activation during workouts * Excellent customer support * Journal screen lets you document your run * See your run on a map * Sync your runs with TrainingPeaks software online directly from your mobile device* See distance and average pace in the List * The List view shows the cumulative distance you have run with the app * The List view shows your fastest mile from all your workouts * Journal entry screen allows for easier data entry with larger fields * For treadmill runs you can easily input your treadmill speed and it will be converted into minute per mile (or kilometer) pace * You can change the workout day in the journal entry Because this app needs accurate location information, this app requires a device with a GPS antenna.
