My Training Plan on TrainingPeaks.com

Since I don't have one day to waste I need to build a precise plan to get ready for July 16th.

I posted the plan on www.TrainingPeaks.com

The absolute most important component of a marathon training plan is the progression of the Long Run building up to the longest one 2 or 3 weeks before the race.

In my case, the plan is only 7 weeks long plus a final taper week, so my final Long Run is 2 weeks prior.

LONG RUN PROGRESSION

May 27 - 1hr30min

June 3 - 1hr45min

June 11 - 2hr15min

June 18 - Long Run Recovery (Hills on Thursday this week)

June 24 - 2hr30min

July 3 - 3hr5min

July 9 - Half Marathon

 

SPEEDWORK

Every Tuesday

 

YASSO'S 800's

10X800 - 2 1/2 Weeks Before Race 

Yassos's 800's - A Gauge of Marathon Fitness

 

THRESHOLD RUN/WORKOUT

Every Tuesday

 

BOOT CAMP

Every Thursday

 

ALTERNATE CARDIO

Every Monday

 

HILL OR TABATA

Every Friday


 These workouts are the core essentials. The details of the plan include progress and adaptation weeks as I did the best I could in such a short time to not expect improvement every week. 

Also, an essential component is rest. I earn my recovery days and enjoy them.
