THE DISTANCE COACHING
AN EDUCATED APPROACH TO RUNNING PROGRAM DESIGN
So, you want to run a strong Marathon? Not sure how to train for it? This program is for you.
This program assumes that you already run regularly - you have already done some 10km and half marathon events. This program is ideally suited to an athlete who has previously run a marathon, wants to improve, and can currently manage training runs of up to 10 -15km.
With a passion for anatomy and the physiology of exercise, our head coach is an accomplished age group Marathon and Cross Country runner, Iron-man Triathlete and 3 time World Championship representative. He is an accredited Lvl 2 Advanced Athletics Australia running coach, former Athletics Australia course facilitator and holds a B.App.Sci. (Human Movement) and Post Grad.Dip. (Exercise Science)

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS PROGRAM
This program is a 16 week lead in which becomes highly specific meaning it's perfect for runners targeting a competitive Marathon race.
The sessions in this program are based around Perceived Effort rather than heart rate zones or actual running pace. There is an emphasis throughout the program on teaching you pacing which is critical to racing well.
This plan progresses through 2 weeks of general conditioning to prepare you and introduce you to sessions that you can expect throughout the 12 week Marathon specific phase (which will see your longest run of 36km and longest total week of 68.5km). Nearing your event the program will enter a 2 week taper.
The 12 week specific training block is broken into 4 week blocks (3 training weeks and 1 recovery week).
At The Distance, our running programs are designed using training fundamentals proven to enhance performance. Inserted strategically each week are various forms of aerobic, anaerobic and high intensity running specific training sessions.
