Marathon Training Program?

Post by KYRun0 » Thu, 20 Mar 1997 04:00:00


I am starting to train for the Walt Disney Marathon in January 98', which
will be used to qualify me so that I can run un the '98 Boston Marathon.
My last marathon was in November and a walk/ran to a finishing time of
5:04.25.   I was wondering if anyone could help me come up with a training
program to enable me to reach my goal.   I can workout 3 times a week, 6
days a week if need be.

Good Morning,
     You didn't mention your age on gender.  What qualifying time did you
need ?
Its quite an improvement from 5 hours to 3 hours.  You have quite a task
in front of you.  Tthere are a lot of marathon training plans in runners
world.
    Write back if you want more discussion.  I have run ten including
Disney this year.  It should be a good qualifyer since it is flat and they
use the chips so you don't lose any time at the start line.

Hank

I would check out runners world online - the website.  Just do a search
on runners world online to find the link.

Then, go to the training section and you will find a marathon program
written by Benji Durden - ex Olympic marathon champion.  I think the
program is awesome.  I'm currently training for the Anchorage, Alaska
race on June 21,1997.  I'm following the program to the tee and it's
working great.  My goal is to do a 3:25 (my previous PR is 4:04).  I'm
very confident I will reach my goal following this program.

In addition, I have two friends who have used the program with great
success.  Both have recently qualified for Boston.

good luck!

Mike
