NEW! Runner's World Break 3:45 Marathon Training Plan (16 Weeks)

Want to break 3:45 in the marathon? This plan will help you do it. Most weeks feature one day of rest and six days of running. That includes hills, Yasso 800s, and tempo runs, to build leg and lung power, plus goal-marathon-pace runs. The plan starts with 31 miles a week and a 10-mile long run, and peaks three weeks before the race with 60 miles and a long run that's 22 miles. The plan also features plenty of tips on training, nutrition, injury prevention, and gear to help you get to the starting line feeling healthy and ready to run strong.
