The sport gave me so much since I won two Ironman-titles - the fastest in 8:54 - and the World- and European Championships as an agegrouper. I love to share my experience and a lot of athletes trust me and my coaching skills. As more and more athletes asked for help and coaching I decided to build these training plans here beside my 1 on 1 coaching. So more athletes can start their journey towards their personal goals. I'd be very happy if you will be one of these.
This plan ensures that you will have everything you need to reach your goal of breaking the 5 hours in a marathon.
You'll have 4 run workouts each week and 1-2 massage, Blackrolll or stretching sessions.
To be sure you did everything needed, you have to do the run workouts, but I personally recommend to do the recovery sessions as well, as my experience is that well maintained muscles are faster;-)
So with this plan you can be sure you have everything you need and my full expertise as a pro athlete and physician.
Let's make your dream come true,
