Training Load By Week

You have finished a marathon or two and you are thinking what’s next? Setting your new Personal Best would be a great idea. If you run a full marathon in 3 hr 30 mins, why not to try and conquer 3:10, which may grant you a place in few of World Marathon Majors, say Boston, Chicago or London.

Aim of this plan is to help you to prepare for your sub-3:10 marathon time goal. All workouts have target distances, which are estimated by your target pace but do not be upset if you won’t be able to reach it in a prescribed time. It is just a reference and only race day will show how your training was.
The plan also refers to RPE 1-10 (Rating of Perceived Exertion) scale when describing workouts, however, it is based on the percentage of your calculated Threshold Pace.

If you will have any questions for this plan, prior to or after purchasing it, please contact me by e-mail marius@trainbydata.com and I’ll be happy to help you.

Also, in case the plan gets updated (we all relentlessly seek improvement), you will get the latest version free of charge, just drop me an e-mail. And read the Welcome message before starting. It contains important information about your plan.
