Who is this Plan for?
If you have finished a half-marathon or two (or even tried a marathon) and your half marathon time is around 1:50, this plan will help you to prepare for your sub-3:45 marathon time goal in 20 weeks.
The plan includes one intro week and starts with almost four hours of training first week. It includes a variety of workouts (strides, tempo, steady state, endurance, to name a few) arranged in four-week cycles, which will allow your body to adapt and prepare for a challenging race.
The plan is based on a percentage of your calculated Threshold Pace. Also, workout descriptions refer to RPE 1-10 (Rating of Perceived Exertion) scale, which will help you evaluate your ‘pace by feel’.
The plan does have Strength & Conditioning workouts, however for the best results they should be followed with the supervision of the gym coach.
The plan is compatible with Garmin devices so you will have structured workouts delivered straight to your watch when using the AutoSync feature after connecting your TrainingPeaks and Garmin Connect accounts. However, please check your device compatibility in the Garmin/TrainingPeaks website.
