Welcome to the Runners Without Limits Marathon plan for First-timers and Fun-time Finishers. This plan is for anyone who either is running their first marathon, or who HAS run a marathon before and is looking to have fun this time around. Time goals are not required, just a desire to get the miles in so you can cross the finish line with a smile.
At the start of this plan, you should be able to run or run/walk for at least 60 minutes, and have averaged 15 miles per week for the last 3 months.
Prior to beginning this plan, it is recommended that you have completed at least one half marathon.
Tracking Device: ie Garmin, Polar, Suunto, etc. that can track miles, time, and heart rate.
Foam Roller or other recovery device.
Resistance Bands for post-run strength.
What is included:
20 weeks of training leading up to your Marathon.
2 weeks post-Marathon for recovery in a separate plan, which you will have access to later.
Email Access to Coach Heather for questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Exclusive Videos for participants to include training tips, workout breakdowns, Runner's Strength Sessions, and FAQs.
