This plan is for anyone who wants to run a marathon provided they're able to run five times a week. For those who want to run more days per week, you could just add an extra active recovery day.

The plan would suit athletes who want to get faster and add some structure into their training.

Strength and Conditioning could/should be done more than once a week, doesn't matter which days of the week.
