This Marathon Training Plan Level 2 training plan (up to 16 weeks long) includes my tried and true, scientifically-based and proven marathon workout sequence. You'll improve your endurance with progressing long runs. You'll boost your stamina and speed with my marathon specialty workouts and I'll have you perform several goal pace workouts so you really dial in goal pace. And speaking of goal pace, this plan includes several of the predictor workouts I use with athletes so you can be absolutely sure of your best pace for race day.
Before starting, you should be able to run 30 minutes on your regular runs and at least 60 minutes on your long runs.
For each and every run, I'll provide the exact pace range for each run/workout (integrated from the McMillan Running Calculator). I'm also making your plan really flexible so it can flow with your life. You can easily move runs around based on your life schedule.
FREE PREHAB INCLUDED
In addition to the run training, I'm also going to have you perform our strength training routine that syncs with your run training as well as my form drills to help you improve your running form and learn to run fast. These "prehab" programs are included with your plan and build you into a strong, supple, injury-resistant runner.
