Plan Description

Who is this Plan for?

If you can run a full marathon in around 3 hr 15 mins, why not to try and conquer 3:05, which may grant you a place in few of World Marathon Majors, say Boston, Chicago or London? This plan can help you to reach that marathon time goal in 24 weeks.

Plan Highlights

The plan has a two week intro period and starts with 5:45 hours of training on the first week. It includes a variety of workouts (ladders, tempo, steady state, endurance, to name a few) arranged in four-week cycles, which will allow your body to adapt and prepare for a challenging race.

The plan is based on a percentage of your calculated Threshold Pace, however, workout descriptions also refer to RPE 1-10 (Rating of Perceived Exertion) scale. RPE will help you evaluate your 'pace by feel', so the actual distance covered may be different from athlete to athlete.

The plan is compatible with Garmin devices so you will have structured workouts delivered straight to your watch when using the AutoSync feature after connecting your TrainingPeaks and Garmin Connect accounts. However, please check your device compatibility in the Garmin/TrainingPeaks website.
