Marathon (INTERMEDIATE) for triathletes – BREAK 3:15 for the marathon

Online Delivery via Training Peaks

— $49.00 USD

This plan is for those runners hoping to break the 3:15 mark in the marathon, running 4:30 – 4:40 per km (7:15 per mile). Having helped countless marathoners and triathletes break this barrier on their way to Boston marathon qualifiers or just as an awesome off-season goal, this program features all of the key runs and notes necessary to race with confidence on the day.

The 16-week program is broken into 4 main cycles, following a traditional periodization model of 3 weeks build / 1 week rest or recovery. The final 2 cycles feature progressive marathon paced sessions to help the athlete both physically and mentally prepare. The program also crucially features a weekly strength program, a X- training day, plus a weekly swim session so that you can keep in touch with your swimming over the off-season. There are weekly notes about best running practice, recovery, nutrition and lots of tips and tricks to ensure that no stone is left unturned.

Because most triathletes will want to (and really should) include 1 swim and 1 ride, these are added into the program, with detailed swim sets that are predominantly aerobic and easy rides that will nicely offset the running volume. There are also very detailed notes on a weight training program that is specific to endurance running with detailed videos and notes to ensure proper execution.
