Marathon Plans

Extraordinary marathon race results are the outcome of science-based and experience-tested training. All plans are designed with non-linear periodization.


Why non-linear periodization?


#1 Your running performance will be more consistent as multiple training stimuli are in the mix throughout the entire training cycle.

#2 Your risk of injury is reduced as the weekly mileage doesn’t fluctuate much and speed isn’t suddenly introduced out of nowhere.
