Plan Description



Efficientendurance

Have you challenged yourself to run a Marathon but would like to either start or keep up cycling too?
Are you struggling to break through a plateau?
Do you struggle to balance the volume and intensity of your run training to achieve better results?
You need a plan that gives you a good balance of intensity that will help you progress your performance to the next level. We have developed just that for you.

Starting from scratch, this 16 week plan will have you ready to run a full marathon in less than 4 months and adds 1 ride per week into the mix to keep things varied!
Progress from under 3 hours of running per week at the beginning of the plan, up to 35km after 13 weeks.
Each week contains 4 runs, and 1 bike ride with only 4 total sessions on recovery weeks. There is a period of 8 weeks that focuses on your 'Base' fitness and building up your stamina slowly. From weeks 9-13 the focus is on your progressive weekly long run and some shorter, slightly faster running in between.

This is THE plan if your main goal is to complete the marathon rather than going for a specific time.

The feeling of crossing the line after a marathon is one you will never forget, with this plan, you will never forget the journey to that point!
