Congratulations on qualifying for the Boston Marathon! This training plan is designed for individuals who have been previously training and are looking to tune-up for the final 8 weeks of their marathon build. The focus of this training plan is to increase your fitness through a variety of interval training, hill repeats and marathon specific work. Interval training will be high-intensity, but lower volume, with longer periods of rest. Hill training will be running uphill at a moderate to high-intensity to improve your power, endurance and running form. The marathon specific work and long runs are focused on building up your aerobic endurance and leg strength to prepare for the marathon distance. The long runs and Marathon Specific workouts should be done on hilly routes to simulate the Boston Marathon course.
