Plan Description


Intro to Marathon

Beginners Plan


"It's not what you get from your training, it's what you become from your training"

Who is this plan for?
Are you looking to run your first marathon? Maybe you just finish your first couple half marathons and you're ready to bump things up a notch? This 16 week plan is dialed in to get you to the finish line of your first marathon confident and fit. This plan is ideal for a runner with some running experience that can confidently handle a 20 mile week of running from the start. this plan is designed for athletes who enjoy regular running with 5 days of running building to 6 days a week of running


This plan delivers a 16 week training schedule for a beginner runner who enjoys running and wants to work up to a full weekly schedule of running. This plan isn't for a casual 3 days-a-week runner. This plan is ideal for an athlete who enjoys making running part of their weekly training regimen. This plan is ideal for an athlete tackling a flat or rolling course. Extremely hilly courses may need some adjustments. Contact coaches@lifelongnendurance.com if you have questions. This is a strict build up without any pre-scheduled tune up races. Ideally your last tune up race is 3-4 weeks from your goal race.


Before you jump in you should be able to complete:
At least 2-3 half marathons in recent history
Be confident with running and building running into your weekly schedule

This plan is great for athletes pursuing rolling or flat marathon courses like CIM, Berlin Marathon, Chicago Marathon, Rock'N Roll Arizona, Marine Corp Marathon, or Grandma's Marathon
