Plan Description

This six month marathon training plan will have you reaching your target marathon ready to race. Using time based workouts designed to fit into a busy schedule, this plan favors quality over quantity. Before starting this plan, you should be comfortable with four days a week running and a long run of about 1:30. You will build up from a weekly volume of 4 hours of running to a maximum of 7:15 of running. The long runs top out at 3:20, but with targeted paces over the course of the time. There are five days of running through the week, with one complete rest day and one cross training day.
