The training method
It preconditions your speed and endurance early in the training cycle so that you can reach a higher VO2max and lactate threshold in the subsequent focus block and eventually run a faster marathon race pace.
1. Foundation - This is the base + speed phase which is characterized by extreme polarization.
2. Conditioning - This is the fitness phase with a focus on VO2max and lactate threshold.
3. Race-Specific - This is the sharpening phase where your marathon race-fitness is brought to a peak.
