Plan Description

Who is this Plan for?

If you have finished a half-marathon or two, this plan will help you to prepare for your sub-4:00 marathon time goal in 20 weeks.

Plan Highlights

The plan includes one intro week and starts with 3:20 hours of training first week. It includes a variety of workouts (strides, 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.
