The Do-It-Yourself Marathon Plan
Amby Burfoot’s Do-It-Yourself Marathon Plan provides all the completeness, detail, gradual build-up, and scientific foundation of other marathon-training plans costing $30 to $100 and more. Your 16-week plan will include Long Runs, Tempo Runs, Recovery Weeks, and Taper Weeks—all completely individualized to your ability and your preferred training schedule (ie, days and miles per week).
No other marathon plan does more. No other similar plan costs less.
The DIY Marathon is appropriate for someone currently running as little as 3 times a week for a total of 6 miles, or for someone running 7 times and 70 miles. Of course, you get out of the Plan what you put into it.
It will take you just 5-10 minutes to complete the 6 steps to your DIY Marathon Plan. You’ll need only pencil and lined paper, or Calendar, Word, or Excel if you choose to create a digital product.
