Designed for Intermediate to Advanced Runners, this plan will help take you through your marathon training on only 3 days of running.
If you're the type of runner that:
-Prefers including cross training in your plan
-Wants to run a marathon but needs to reduce the amount of days you run
-Can only get out for 3 days of running
Then this is the plan for you.
You will get in all your key running workouts while supplementing your training with cycling and/or cross training in order to get to your marathon fit, healthy, and ready to run. It includes strength training, days off, and active recovery days.
This plan gradually builds your long runs leading up to Marathon day and includes two 3 hour long runs. A document explaining effort/zones/intensity levels is included for reference. I use traditional periodization for this training plan that starts with a base, then goes into strength, speed, and then a taper.
If you're not currently running the mileage prescribed in the workouts, you should start by gradually building up for a few weeks or months (depending on your starting point) before starting this plan.
