My only gripe: I think Hanson 's could use one more plan between Just Finish and Beginner.

The workouts are intense and it is very time consuming so if you an not commit to 6 days a week running up to 52 miles per week ( at the peak) then it may onl be for you.

I will also say that just following the speed, strength and tempo sessions would be valuable too general running even if you did not need to ollow the whole plan.Hope this helps.

Nonetheles, I hink the half plan would be overwhelming for most recreational runners, especially masters who may need more recovery between tempo runs.Review: I will update this review after I use the plan to reflect what I feel about the plan.

he only difference between the books is that the half plans in this books have less overall mileage than the plans in the full ook.

If you know the Hansons' half-plan, I don ’ t realise how else you can find it cheaper than buying this book.
