Plan Description

Welcome to your Marathon Plan!

This is an 18 week intermediate training plan

80/20 training is highly effective and you spend 80% of your time working out at a low intensity and 20% at a high intensity.

This method will enable you to get your volume of running need for your marathon without breaking down and helping to avoid injury. Runs will become more pleasant and less draining You'll carry less fatigue from one run to the next Your performance will improve in the few high-intensity runs. Your fitness levels will reach new heights.

This plan has been designed for runners who want to take their training load up a notch or two in order to improve their marathon time. Before you begin the plan, build your training to the point where you are running at least three times a week, including some short efforts at moderate and high intensities and some easy runs of at least eight miles (13 km) and where you are doing aerobic exercise seven times per week. The training load starts at 4 hours and 52 minutes in week 1 and peaks at 6 hours and 56 minutes in week 13.

The plan includes the option to cross train and strength & conditioning to help avoid injury on your 18 week journey to your marathon.
This plan is delivered professionally via our App, your own private area of our website if you join our team or comes as a download to print out.

What's in the plan:
- Run sessions with Heart Rate
- One Strength & Conditioning Session to help you prevent injury
- Strength session is body weight so no need for gym equipment and the session has videos to follow
- One 7-minute Runners Stretch session per week
- Cross training cycling with HR & Power for Zwift , Garmin etc
- Training & Race Tips

You should consult your doctor before embarking on any physical fitness training. For any of the sessions, especially the strength and conditioning sessions, if you are unsure of the exercises then seek the help and advice of a professional near you.
