Plan Description

This is a 16 week MARATHON plan designed to get you to the race day happy, healthy and ready to perform!
This plan is built from a physical therapist perspective, with core strength, recovery and health being paramount.
Recovery days are built in, but please take more if needed... Especially on days that you did not get adequate sleep the night prior. My rule is if your fatigue level is 7/10 or higher you must take a rest day.
The plan has 4 phases: base training, build training, peak training and a taper. If you miss a workout or a week due to travel or illness..please do not try and make up the training by adding it to the current week. Call me and I will walk you through how to change it. We don't want you making any large jumps in your long run mileage...this is where the injuries occur.
I have added optional cross training - please do not get overwhelmed! If you enjoy cycling - do it! If you enjoy swimming..do it!
Core workouts are a necessary part of arriving to the race injury free.
