I can still remember at some point during each of the marathon legs of my 6 long course triathlons thinking, "I really need to work on my running more". We are in a sport that is dominated by the bike and running is hard on our bodies. So the majority of us think nothing of increasing the bike distance and reducing the running.
But after my last Ironman event I promised myself that I would knuckle down and write a program that was run specific so I could finally fill in the gap in the off season and give myself a pair of running legs that could finish off a race well and along the way give myself a PB marathon time I could tell the grand children about.
This program is designed to build on your fitness from the run leg of a recent long distance triathlon and projects you forward with specific run focused workouts and strength sessions that will improve your marathon time. This program has been written to weave the delicate balance of speed and endurance into your body so that you can perform at your peak after 16 weeks of training. The program also incorporates strength and conditioning app SWORKIT and I have written a companion blog that helps explain the nuances of the program.It can be found here https://www.mindovermatterendurance.com/coaches-classroom.
If you have any questions about this program please do not hesitate to ask at any point during your training.
