Marathon Coach

Thursday Training Plan: MARATHON Training Plan (INTERMEDIATE 24week Plan, Saturday Race) – Power Based

“Training for excellence, with excellent training.”

Half Marathon Training

When you cross the finish line of your marathon, having ran faster than you have in recent events you will have accomplished something very special.

Designed for Intermediate runners who are looking to runner their marathon faster, the primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to COMPLETE YOUR event 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.

Starting 24 weeks before the your marathon (this plan can be set to start when ever you want and you can reuse it), 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. This programme is set up to use a running Power meter such as a Stryd to measure your intensity whilst running.

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

Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing related questions.
