8-Week Marathon Training Plan


Coach Mwangi

4.29 (7)


8 Weeks

Plan Description

This plan is designed for anyone looking to run a marathon with only 2 months to train for it. I have used it with great success. It is intended for someone with a good mileage base and a few shorter distance races under his/her belt, such as 5Ks, 10Ks and half marathons. It is not ideal for a beginner runner. The peak mileage for this plan is 45 miles.
