Plan Description

The Coach of professional Champions and many agegroup Winners has build this plan to bring you to the Marathon finish in Sub 3.30 hours. This plan is ideal for intermediate or advanced runners who have 5:30 - 7:30 hours of training time each week. Please note that some additional stretching and massage is also integrated in the plan. Before starting to prepare for your race you should run regularly for some weeks already and also be familiar with some shorter efforts and intervals.

The workout schedule includes up to 4 runs per week, plus 2 optional strength workouts per week.

Key workouts in this plan include the following:

Endurance Runs: Steady runs of 45 to 60 minutes at FTHR 69-83%.

Long Runs: Steady runs of 2:00h to 3:25h at FTHR 65-75%.

Intervals/Speed Sessions: Runs featuring intervals at VO2max pace separated by easy jogging recoveries.

Tempo Runs: Learn to run at your Threshold pace.

The included plan consists Training Peaks structured workout format, which will make things even easier for you. You can see your own training targets and zones for every workout through the daily workout e-mail reminders and mobile notifications. And furthermore you will also see a graphic representation of the workout within the Training Peaks web portal and Training Peaks mobile app, which helps you to get a sense of the entire Workout by taking just one look at the easy to understand graphs and segments for every part of your training. You will no longer have to read through long descriptions and get everything at a glance. My athletes prefer this comfort since TrainingPeaks offers this awesome feature.

Structured workouts can be exported for use in third-party apps and select devices including Garmin, Zwift, TrainerRoad, CycleOps, RacerMate, and some more. All you have to do is click “Export” and select the proper file format for your device. For more detailed information regarding exporting workouts go to

#performingperfect is not by chance our hashtag.
#performingperfect was necessary to win races.
#performingperfect is our performance standard.

What stands behind it is our greatest passion. Coaching is so much more than sports science, medicine or the creation of training plans. It is about people. Everyone is different. But one thing is always the same:
Pure happiness when on day X the #performingperfect is accomplished and dreams have become reality.

We never get enough of this feeling.
