This program is designed for Advanced 1 runners doing the Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 8, 2017. If you are training for a marathon with a different end date, you need to select one of my other programs.
Advanced 1 follows a progressive buildup--similar to that for Novice and Intermediate runners, except you start at 10 miles and peak with three 20-milers. There is also more training at marathon pace (usually Saturdays, the day before Sunday long runs) plus one day of speedwork each week. Every day I will send you emails telling you what to run and offering training tips. For more information, visit the marathon screens on my website: halhigdon.com.
