RUNNING A SPRING MARATHON ?NOW’S YOUR CHANCE TO BEGIN YOUR OWN # BIGMARATHONCHALLENGE WITH COACH RICHARD COATES’ TRAINING PLANS

MARATHON TRAINING PLANS

Last month, we introduced you to the four women taking on this year’s Big Marathon Challenge with Women’s Running (see page 88). Hundreds of you applied to be on the team but only four could make the final cut – but if you weren’t successful, don’t worry. We asked the team coach, Richard Coates from Full Potential (fullpotential.co.uk), to put together three marathon training plans aimed at different levels of runner. If you’re a complete newcomer, like team member Leah McDaniel, have a look at our Get Me Round Plan, which will do exactly as the name suggests. Slightly more experienced runners like Claire Price and Katie Hainbach, aiming to finish in the 4hrs to 4hrs 30mins bracket, should follow our Intermediate plan. And those of you lucky enough to be looking at sub-3:30 times, like Alice Doggrell, should follow our Advanced plan.

In part one of the plans, Coach Coates explains the different types of sessions needed to complete your training, and you’ll find the first six weeks of your training over the next few pages. Next issue you’ll find the final six weeks of the plans, taking you right up to race day. So whether you’re joining the team at the Virgin Money London Marathon in April or you have another 42K race on the horizon, you’ll reach that finish line in great shape and with your best possible time.
