“Training for excellence, with excellent training.”
When you cross the finish line the K2M Marathon you've accomplished something very special.
Designed for Beginner runners who are looking to complete their first marathon event, the primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to COMPLETE the K2M Marathon.
Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full Marathon distance events and my success coaching hundreds of runners & triathletes.
Starting 20 weeks before the K2M Marathon (on 07-Jan-19), this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week typically contains 3 runs and a flexibility session. You will build up to 2 hrs running. Although not compulsory, I recommend using a GPS watch with heart rate monitor in conjunction with perceived effort.
Prior to using this plan, you should be able to run for a minimum of 30 minutes
Purchase of this plan includes the option of joining our fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask myself any training or racing related questions.
