Question:

What are the components needed to run a faster time in the Marathon?

Answer:

  • A very slow long run that increases to 29 miles, three to four weeks before the marathon.
  • A series of mile repeat workouts done on some of the non-long run weekends increasing to a maximum of 14 X 1 mile.
  • A few running form drills done each week, during the short runs.
  • Strategic rest days that allow for rebuilding after the hard workouts.

Note: The training is detailed in my book RUNNING – A YEAR ROUND PLAN
