Who is this Plan for?

You have finished several marathons and seriously fell in love with running. Chances are your PB is sub-3:30, so the next step is hitting 3:15. This plan can help you to reach that marathon time goal in 24 weeks.

Plan Highlights

The plan has a one week intro period and starts with 4 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 one set in the workout. Target distances in some workouts are just for reference and only race day will show how your training was.

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.
