Hello fellow athlete! Coach Griffin here,

I'm excited you made it to this page because it means you're gearing up for a full marathon! The marathon can be an extremely daunting event, especially for athletes like yourself that are looking to snag a PR or tackle a more challenging course. But that is precisely why I developed this plan; it takes the guess work out of training and helps you bridge the gap from where you are to where you want to be!

This plan is focused on hitting daily mileage targets at your customized training paces based on your unique ability level! Easy runs and long runs are written with a mileage range to give you some flexibility. This gives you flexibility as well as helps you learn how to listen to your body. Consistency is the number one predictor of race day success!

I'm excited to see where your journey takes you and hear about how you crushed those 26.2 miles.

Happy training,

Coach Griffin

The long run is an essential workout but build it up slowly! Race day is more about resilience than speed, and aerobic paced long runs build resilience through strengthening connective tissue as well as muscular endurance.
