Plan Description

“Training for excellence, with excellent training.”


Training Plan


When you cross the finish line of a Marathon, you will have accomplished something very special.


Designed for Intermediate runners who are looking to run a Marathon faster than they previously have. The primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to COMPLETE YOUR event faster.


Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full MARATHONS and my success coaching hundreds of runners and triathletes.


Starting 12 weeks before the Marathon, this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week contains 4 runs and a stretching session. There is plenty of time to include  a strength and conditioning programme to also optimise your fitness. I recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with a GPS watch (such as a Garmin).


Prior to using this plan, you should be able to run continuously for 90 minutes.


Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing related questions.

Training for another race distance? I also have training plans for other running events and triathlons too.
