After reading the marathon training articles in the January 2012 magazine I settled on the 'just get round plan' (with 'boosters') to train for the Vienna marathon in April. I'm a novice matathoner so havn't got a good understanding of what works so a recommendation from RW seemed ideal. But I am now confused as the RW Marathon email seems to recommend a different plan. I figured they would be consistent in their recommendation so is one better than the other?
Any help appreciated.
Add me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be more than happy to help you.
Thanks for the offer Darren. I'm going to stick with the plan from the magazine so i'm all set now.
I spent weeks trying to find a suitable marathon training plan. So much conflicting advice out there.
Don't be afraid to tailor a plan to suit you - as long as you rest or have easier sessions following the hard/long runs.
Somebody adivsed me to look at the Smartcoach plans on this website. I have ended up adapting one of those, as like the fact it sets the pace and level according to your current milage/pace.
