This training plan is made for athletes with a specific goal in mind: such as a sub 3 hour or sub 2.45 marathon.
This training plan is designed for athletes that are already experienced with different running workouts such as running intervals and tempo runs. The athlete should already be able to do a weekly long run of about 90 minutes.
PACE BASED TRAINING PLAN:
In order to successfully execute this training plan you need to know and enter your Threshold pace in training peaks. Check out 42runs.eu/trainingplans to see how to do that!
TIME BASED TRAINING PLAN:
This is a time-based training plan. This means you will not be asked to run a specific distance, but a specific time on your feet (for example a one-hour easy run, or 2 x 20 minutes tempo run).
Why time? Say, you must run for one hour. On days you feel energetic you will make more kilometers in that one hour, and on days you feel a little less energetic you will be able to take it a bit easier and run a less kilometers in that one hour.
MAX 6 WORKOUTS A WEEK:
This training plan is specified so that you will be running six days a week, optionally you can also do 5 workouts a week. The plan will tell you exactly which workouts can be skipped. But don’t take it as weekly shopping. Determine at the start of this training plan if you will go for six workouts a week or five workouts a week.
2 hours and 50 minutes.
