16 Week Marathon Training Plan-Intermediate">
Do you have a few marathons under your belt, but can’t seem to breakthrough to your time goals? Or perhaps you start your marathons strong but fall apart with only a few miles to go? If you are looking to run strong from start to finish then this training plan is for you. With long runs as the cornerstone of this training plan, you will build endurance and hone your race-day pacing through multiple long runs of 20 miles. The plan also incorporates weekly interval training and tempo runs in addition and has built in “step-back” weeks to help you stay healthy and avoid injury. You will also find race-day pacing guidelines that will help you run your best 26.2 yet! This training plan is designed for runners who have a 6-8 week base of at least 25-35 miles per week and a long run of 8-10 miles. If you do not have a base of 25-35 miles a week consider Run Far Girl Coaching’s 24 week beginner plan.
