Marathon Prep:

If you are preparing for a marathon, the program you intend to follow will probably be 12 to 16 weeks. This assumes you are already fit to train. So allow a few weeks of build up in order to prepare yourself.

Ensure you have a minimum of 4 weeks basic endurance in the bank. 4 to 5 sessions per week  of steady running will get you ready. Set out as follows:

Session 1: 30 to 40 minutes running as you feel but not too fast.

Session 2: Quality Session, Run 5 x 4 minutes at current 10k pace off 2 minutes jog.

Session 3: same as session 1.

Session 4: Light tempo - 10 minutes easy 15 minutes tempo 10 minutes easy.

Session 5: Long steady run - between 8 to 12 miles build this up week on week if not currently running the distance.

warm up and cool down as required.
