Plan Description

Welcome to your 16 week Marathon training plan designed for Beginner or Intermediate Athletes which includes structured workouts for you to follow.

TARGET ATHLETE

This plan is for runners who are ready to take their training load up a notch or two in order to improve their marathon time. Before you begin the plan, build your training to running at least 3x per week, including some short efforts at moderate and high intensities and some easy runs of at least 13km, and are doing aerobic exercise (runs and nonimpact cross-training) 5x per week.

THIS A LIFETIME PLAN

All purchased plans become a permanent part of your TrainingPeaks plan library. You can start, stop, and reuse the plan as often as you like, beginning or ending at any point in the plan.

Please seek individual medical advice if you have any pre existing injuries prior to starting this program.

100% STRUCTURED WORKOUTS

Each workout can be exported to a supported device, which will automatically guide you through the session with duration, lap, and intensity prompts. Workouts do not have to be exported to be performed effectively, as the descriptions provide all the information to successfully complete the workout.

These runs are designed around your RPE or THRESHOLD pace, it’s important to keep your efforts relatively easy in training unless specifically called for in the workout.
