Plan Description

This program is designed with the intent of achieving your age specific Boston Qualifying time, and/or improve upon your current marathon time. While this program can be used by any level of runner, it is advised that you are currently running 4-6 days a week, are currently running <4 hours for the marathon, and are comfortable running continuous for 90-180 minutes.

It is also highly encouraged that you have or can acquire a tire pulling system prior to starting this program, as you will see tire pulling programmed regularly as warmups, and as well as part of workouts. These tire pulling systems are great for improving overall physical conditioning, but also in increasing specific running economy, efficiency, power to ground, and improving running mechanics and cadence. To set up a tire pulling system, purchase the harness (link below), find an old SUV sized vehicle tire, install an eye bolt on the center of the tread, and attached harness strap to tire. See video link below.
