Plan Description


Are you ready to run a MARATHON!?!

With this plan, you will be as you build endurance, speed and strength!


Creator: Maria Simone, No Limits Endurance Coaching

Length: 16 weeks

Ability level: First time marathoner or a runner returning to the marathon distance after a few years of running shorter distance. We strongly advise individuals who are going to race their first marathon to have completed a half-marathon. While the plan is good for beginners, this is not a couch to marathon plan.

Before starting this plan, you should be able to run 60-75 minutes continuously, and be running 3-4x per week, with an average weekly duration of 2-3 hours.

This plan includes a session to set your heart rate zones, including the calculator to determine your specific zones. All sessions will provide zone guidance for where your intensity level should be for each workout.

You will also have 3-4x/week functional strength sessions to improve core strength, which will aid with your endurance and strength - especially in those later miles!

This plan does not come with regular coach correspondence. However, anyone who purchases the plan may have a one-time email consult. If you'd like a phone consult, you get 20% off the current rate. Email maria@nolimitsendurance.com

Athletes who purchase this plan receive a 10% discount to join our #NLECrew, the team for endurance athletes with no limits! Visit #NLECrew for details or to sign up.

Upon purchase of the plan, you can email Maria (maria@nolimitsendurance.com) for the code to get your club discount.
