You're going to love this training plan! In addition to 16 weeks of running workouts, we also included 16 FREE INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS; one before every training week. That's right! You'll be able to see and hear your coach explaining how each training week is organized and structured. This marathon program goes beyond numbers on a spreadsheet. It's a multimedia approach along with links to drills, heart rate and pace training so you know the purpose and effort of each workout. Each week we include a mix of running and cross training as well as planned rest days. This program is meant to be flexible based on time and distance. So, before you start this program, you'll need to be comfortable running a long run of 20 per week with at least a 8 mile long run. The goal of this marathon plan is to increase your weekly mileage to 40 miles. The first 4 weeks are designed to gradually build your mileage and skills so you can stay injury-free. The next 8weeks add some intensity while continuing to build strength and endurance. The last 4 weeks gradual taper to ensure you are recovered and ready to finish healthy and strong! So, are you ready to rock and roll!?
