Plan Description

12 Week Sub 2:55 Advanced Marathon Block | 70-80 miles per week<


Built for athletes who are looking to achieve a NYC Marathon qualifying time or dip in under the 2:55 mark at their next marathon. The marathon block is big on miles, big workouts, and is for athletes looking for a good challenge.

Created by USATF Level 2 Endurance Coach and Athlete Andrew Simmons. This plan is built on the knowledge gained from years of coaching, and 10+ years as an amateur elite runner (38+ Marathon or longer distance race finishes, 10+ sub 2:50). Andrew has a passion for coaching that is evident in not only his personal performances but in the success his athletes see on race day.

This plan delivers a 12 week training schedule that will have you training 8-10+ hours per week with a standard 4 week periodization schedule. Each week follows a familiar pattern with recovery running days balancing your workout days. This plan focuses extensively on building your ability to manage your goal race pace. This includes implementing 2 speed or tempo workouts per week as well as integrating race specific workouts where you will run at or below race pace for extensive periods. This plan can be set to start on any Monday and will run for 12 Weeks.

Before you jump in you should be able to complete:
A challenging mountain 50K
Be confident with basic strength training movements
Marathon or longer nutrition and hydration strategies
