Marathon Beginner Plan
This 16-week marathon beginner training plan gradually builds to 25 miles (40 km)/week with 3 runs/week. It includes easy runs, long runs, and tempo/threshold runs.
The long run starts at 6 miles (10 km) and peaks at 15 miles (24 km) in week 12.
This plan is for beginners who can run 50min at a comfortable pace without stopping. It prepares for a marathon race and is a stepping stone towards the marathon intermediate level.
I’m only an email away for questions that may arise during the course of this training plan.
