The 50 mile Beginner plan is geared towards experienced marathon and 50k runners who are ready to race farther and run their first 50 mile. The plan progresses from an 8 mile stand alone long run to a 24 mile long run, and also includes back to back long runs, speed work, tempo runs, strength training, cross training, yoga and rest days. There is also a field test to set heart rate zones.
This plan is best for those who have been running at least a year and are currently running at least four times per week, a total of at least 30 miles per week, and a long run of at least ten miles.
