OVERVIEW -This is a 24 week Beginners Marathon Plan that starts with a 10 week running base phase, acclimatising you to running five times per week, it builds from a low of 22 miles per week to peak weeks of around 46 miles. It is periodised with essential recovery weeks and is focused towards runners aspiring to run their first or second marathons.



WHAT IS THIS TRAINING PLAN FOR - This plan is focused at enabling a Beginner Level Marathon Performance, this can be articulated in time terms as approximately sub 4:30hrs for men and sub 4:59hrs for women. So whilst this may be a beginners programme it is for the runner looking to do a little more than just finish!



WHO IS THIS TRAINING PLAN FOR - Invariably those embarking on this plan will have a some basic running background they may not have taken part in may organised road running events, but could have experience in 5km through to Half Marathon events. The plan would also serve as great option for Intermediate Masters athletes aged 50 plus who are still seeking a stronger performance.



CALL: If requested the plan can also include 2x 30-40min video calls, the first at the beginning of the plan and the second at the athletes request as they work through the plan.
