Training for Excellence, with Excellent Training

Auckland Half Marathon
Training Plan

Thursday Training Plan – Auckland Marathon & Half Marathon 24 Week Training Plan

“Training for excellence, with excellent training.”

When you cross the finish line of the Auckland Marathon or Half Marathon, having ran it faster than you have in recent events, you will have accomplished something very special.

Designed for Intermediate runners who are looking to run their marathon or half marathon faster, the primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to COMPLETE the Auckland Marathon or Half Marathon FASTER than before.

Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full marathon distance finishes and my success coaching hundreds of runners and triathletes.

Auckland MARATHON Training Plan (INTERMEDIATE 24 week Plan) + Start 14 May 18 3runs/wk

Starting 24 weeks before the the Auckland Marathon (on 14 May 2018), this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week typically contains 3x runs and a flexibility session. You will build up to 2:30 hrs running in a single session. Although not necessary, I recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with a GPS watch (such as a Garmin).

Prior to using this plan, you should be able to run consistently for 90 minutes.

Purchase the programme today for only $177* through Training Peaks and have it loaded directly into your Training Peaks account. Don’t have a Training Peaks account? Sign up for the free Basic Account today (and get upgraded to premium for your first 7 days).
