The Coach of 2x Ironman-Champion Astrid Stienen uses this plan to bring his athletes to the Marathon finish within the planned time. This plan is ideal for intermediate runners who wants to achieve a time goal of Sub 4:30 min for a Marathon and have 5:30 - 7:00 hours of training time each week. Please note that some additional stretching and massage is also integrated in the plan. Before starting to prepare for your race you should run regularly for some weeks already and also be familiar with some shorter efforts and intervals.
The workout schedule includes up to 7 runs per week, plus 2 optional strength workouts per week.
Key workouts in this plan include the following:
Endurance Runs: Steady runs of 45 to 60 minutes at FTHR 69-83%.
Long Runs: Steady runs of 2:00h to 3:25h at FTHR 65-75%.
Intervals/Speed Sessions: Runs featuring intervals at VO2max pace separated by easy jogging recoveries.
Tempo Runs: Learn to run at your Threshold pace.
