Plan Description

A 12- week marathon training programme, from a starting point of being able to run a half marathon.

This programme has THREE key runs per week, and is quality, not quantity focused.
The sessions are based on a mix of RPE, threshold pace and anticipated marathon pace.

Ideally a Heart rate monitor and/or GPS watch will help you to get the most out of this programme.

Unless you specifically ask for assistance from the coach there will be no communication over the duration of this programme.

Sunshine Multisport coaching

As a GBR age-group sprint distance triathlete, I came into triathlon and competive sport fairly late in life (late 30s), starting with rowing and more latterly into triathlon.

I know what it takes to balance work, life and training, particularly for the more mature athletes! Taking time to rest and recover is a key aspect of my 1-1 coaching.
