Training for Argentan

In preparation for the Argentan half-marathon, I have set up the following training plan:

Week 1: one 12×200 session (36″) and one 12×300 session (57″), plus four recovery sessions

Week 2: one 5×800 session (1’45”) and one 12×300 (56″) session, one  25mn threshold session and three recovery sessions

Week 3: one 6×1000 session and one 8×500 session, one 30mn threshold session and three recovery sessions

Week 4: one 2000-400-1600-800-1200 session and one 6×1000 session, plus four recovery sessions

Week 5: one 3×2000 session and one 8×500 session, one 45mn threshold session and three recovery sessions

Week 6: one 6×300 session and three recovery sessions

and I hope I can stick to it for the three coming weeks.
