You will get in all your key running workouts while supplementing your training with one cross training day a week to keep you balanced and in order to get to your marathon fit, healthy, and ready to run your best. It includes strength training, days off, and active recovery days.

Before starting: You should be able to comfortably run for 45 minutes before starting this plan.  The weekly volume of the plan starts at 3:45 for the first week and peaks at 7:45. The plan gradually builds your long runs leading up to Marathon day and includes one 3 hour long run. This is a periodized training plan that starts with a base, then goes into strength, speed, and then a taper.
