So I’m having some concerns about the half marathon training schedule by Jeff Galloway that is on the runDisney site. So far I’ve been using his run/walk method and it is working well for me. I just ran my first 10k last weekend. But what concerns me is literally every other beginner training schedule I have come across recommends significantly more weekly mileage than his, which only calls for 2 30 min weekday runs and one long run. I’ve compared below A. Galloway to two other schedules B and C that are typical of what I’m seeing. For me a 30min run is ~2.5mi for 5 miles during the week. Adding those to the long run you can see there is significantly less total weekly miles in the Galloway plan compared to the others. Am I going to need those miles? Why do most other plans recommend so many more miles if they’re NOT needed?
