Alex HarrisonAll plans by this Coach
A running plan for the serious runner, seeking personal bests and all-time fitness highs. This plan uses running workouts programmed with specific paces based off previous race efforts or estimates of best efforts. As with any good training plan, it starts progressively and builds to a peak using a combination of quality and easy days, planned recovery, optional forms of non-impact cardio training, and suggested resistance training days to progress you to your new marathon PR. The goal of this plan is to prepare you to run a faster marathon than ever before.
