Marathon Training Plan Short Build
Tri Training HarderAll plans by this Coach
This Marathon plan is for the runner with a good base of running in their legs and has recently completed a half marathon (within three months) who wants to step up to the marathon distance. There is a short(ish) build into the longer distance efforts favouring frequency over the classic long miles approach.
Ideal for runners with limited time in through the week, access to a mat for some core exercises and happy to be training a few days in the plan either back to back or multiple workouts in one day. Athletes should have reasonably free weekends as this is where the majority of training will take place. This has had success for athletes of a variety of abilities including multiple PBs
