Training Plan

I built my Monumental Marathon 2017 training program from two sources. The details originate from a popular program developed by three coaches at Furman University, and portions of the program can be found in various magazines and websites, while the entire program can be found in the book Run Less Run Faster. The structures for long runs originate from Indy Runners, the premier running club in Indianapolis, and I’ve been a member of the club for about a decade.
