Marathon Training 2017
Whether you are new to running or training for a Boston Qualifier in 2017, Coach Brendan can help you get the most out of your training. Both Marathon Training and Speed Training are offered this summer.
Not all runners are the same. We vary in experience, genetics and goals. To accommodate runners of different levels, Coach Brendan has prepared six marathon training schedules, 3 for continuous running and 3 for run/walking a marathon. Upon registration, Coach Brendan will assist you in selecting the training schedule best suited to your current condition.
Coach Brendan will work with you throughout the season to maximize your performance on race day.
