Our day-by-day plan will have you marathon-fit in just 18 weeks

The ‘intermediate’ marathon training plan contains a mixture of different training runs at a variety of different paces. It includes shorter fast runs, interval sessions and long runs. The rigours of this marathon training programme would be ideal for a more experienced runner who is aiming to fulfil their potential. The results this plan may help you achieve are ideal for all levels of runner from beginner to intermediate, but perhaps not elite. It is set over 18 weeks to allow more time to condition the body to the rigours of marathon running.
