Our day-by-day, 14 week training plan is perfect for rookie marathon runners

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.

Pace Definitions:

Easy = a very comfortable pace that can be easily maintained.

Steady = a comfortable pace but requires some effort to maintain.
1/2 Pace = the pace at which you would aim for if racing a half marathon.
10k Pace = the pace at which you would aim for if racing a 10k.
5k Pace = the pace at which you would aim for if racing a 5k.
Marathon Pace = the pace you want to aim for on the day of the marathon.
