Hal Higdon

If you are planning on using a Novice program from Hal’s website, I suggest using Novice 2. The week of the 20 mile run in Novice 1 is also the week with the most mileage (40 miles), whereas in Novice 2 the week with the most mileage is a week or two before the 20 mile run (highest week is 37 miles, 20 mile week is 35 miles). Novice 2 also has shorter midweek runs towards the end, which I appreciated. Novice 1 ramps up from a smaller weekly total, so if you need the shorter weekly miles in the beginning of the program, I would suggest switching to the Novice 2 program about halfway through.
