Plan Description

Are you running an important Marathon just 7 weeks after a 50K "tune-up" race.
I know, not the most common scenario but it CAN happen.
This plan will allow you a short period of "rest where running will be slowly re-introduced over the course of 2 weeks where cycling and swimming will be used to help speed recovery while maintaining cardio fitness.
The next few weeks will closely resemble the regular Marathon Training Plan with strength and quality training being emphasized.
There will only be 2 long runs, one of which will be a Race Simulator 4 weeks out from your A Race Marathon

Nicoli Coaching

I am passionate about sports and physical activity. I grew up a soccer player in Italy and have completed numerous Triathlons, from Sprint to Ironman.

I believe One on One coaching provides the best performance on race day.
Every athlete is different in their physiology, strengths, weaknesses and response to training.
As such, a tailored and personalized approach will provide the optimal results.
My approach is quantitative as I truly believe the saying "What gets measured gets Improved!"
