As a 14x Consecutive Boston Marathon Finisher, a Boston Marathon fundraiser, qualifier, a runner of 60+ Marathons, finisher of over 100 long course events and a USAT certified coach, I've put this program together a program centered around the best science available (i.e., power to weight ratios, VO2 Max, lactate threshold, muscular endurance...etc). These are the methods that I've used to progress from a charity runner to a Boston Marathon qualifier. The program incorporates tested and reliable predictors that have been proven successful. The program is also designed with the target peak volume (TPV) that scientifically demonstrates success in running strong through "the wall." The 36 week program has a base phase of 12 weeks, a build phase of 16 weeks and a peak phase of 8 weeks (including taper). The program is a component of the Q (The Complete Toolkit for Qualifying for the Boston Marathon) which consists of: 1) A 60 page eBook that will act as your users guide to qualifying strategy, race nutrition and the program. 2) The "war chest" which consists of a series of Virtual Clinic videos on a range of topics related to marathon running and training to qualify. The duration of the videos total over 1 1/2 hours and they're personally narrated by coach Tony; and a workbook of spreadsheet based calculators to assist with body composition, performance testing and intensity zones....etc. 3) The comprehensive program powered byTrainingPeaks. 4) Discount codes to receive a discounted endurance sports products.
