Join Coach Patrick from Endurance Nation ( for another weekly endurance podcast. This week Coach P discusses why the Half Marathon is one of the most important "non-important" races of your season. You'll not only confirm your fitness, you'll have a much better sense of what your true in-season run potential is!

Why Test Half if the Goal is Fitness Zones?

  • Pacing Required
  • Season Specific
  • Facilitates Better Race Pace Predictions

Other Lessons Learned:

  • Can you be fast without volume?
  • How does your fast deteriorate with more volume (long course folks).
  • How does 1/2 time compare to 70.3 Run time (within 10 minutes).
