Training Plans for Marathon Addicts
I have been following a 28 weeks training plan for beginners from Nike+ to prepare for my 1st Marathon in New York. I totally satisfied with the programme and believe me, I can already feel the improvement at week 6. However, the space between New York and my next race in Dubai will only be 11 weeks apart and I am planning to run in London 12 weeks after Dubai. Next on the agenda is Rio which will come 10 weeks after London. To finish it off, I am hoping to run my personal best on my birthday in Lisbon in December, but I will have 21 weeks to prepare for that.
I found a perfect 12 weeks training plan by Bruce Tulloh HERE. In doing that, I will be following a footstep of a guy name Chris Mooney, which used the same training plan to prepare for his London Marathon this year. His original target was to finish the London Marathon sub 3:30:00 and he surpassed that target in flying colours. He finished the race in 3:05:31. So the plan must be working right?
