Marathon Program

Week 13 | Marathon Day 90

Distance Run

Time: 18-20 miles.

We kick things off today with your LONGEST distance run of the entire program. 18-20 miles for those of you preparing for marathon and beyond is a big but necessary ask! It’s definitely worth planning your run route, planning your fueling for the day, and figuring out if you can talk any willing friends to go out with you!

Enjoy the day, but stay focused on your breathing, posture, and technique 🙂

Remember those walk breaks work for runners of all levels and ability! Use them strategically to reset your breathing, your running posture, and your running technique!

    One round: 10-20 leg swings, hip circles, arm swings and circles, and pushups, etc.

  • Run

    18-20 miles at an easy to moderate pace. You should be able to pass the “talk test”!

    Run 50”/walk 10” or another run/walk interval that works for you!

    Short walk breaks act as a posture re-set. If you stick w this we guarantee you’ll feel more connected and less beat up after these runs!

    On these longer runs its important to hydrate. What’s your strategy for “carrying”?
