All plans by this Coach

Length

16 Weeks

Plan Description

This marathon plan is geared towards the individual who has a solid base, which included speed as well as speed endurance / threshold work.

This plan incorporates all quality aspects required: Aerobic, high aerobic, speed, and speed endurance. The focus of this plan is on quality rather than quantity allowing for a high performance approach, targeting a fast effort on marathon race day.

There is a baseline regression rate test early in the plan, with a spreadsheet that will then enter in some HR data to help dial in heart rate training zones for the duration of the plan.
