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.
