The so called easy marathon training plan is for those that need to balance a hectic lifestyle with their training. It is not by definition an easy marathon training plan but is easier than others. It is shorter than the other training plans and just 14 weeks in total.
It is focused on building up the stamina in a weekly long run whilst adding strength and speed through the additional training runs. The plan is designed to get you round the marathon in a time close to your best. Check out the pace definitions beneath the plan.
