Plan Description

Welcome to the Performance Advantage Marathon training plan. This plan will run for 12 weeks and if completed appropriately will have you running to the best of your abilities.

The plan will have you build consistency in the 1st 4-week block before getting into some more demanding and marathon specific workouts.

The plan is designed to be flexible, and each week is not set in stone. The mid-week runs can be shifted to days that suit and the weekend long run can be interchanged between Saturday and Sunday.

Performance Advantage

I have been racing, studying and coaching endurance sports for my entire adult life. For me, endurance training isn't an afterthought or a chore, it's a way of life.

Early mornings, blisters, afternoon naps, getting excited about the latest Garmin release, that's who I am.
