Our marathon cycle-based program is geared toward a specific race and is suitable for runners who have completed a half marathon and are looking to increase their distance to 42.2K or to improve their current marathon time to achieve a PB or BQ/NYCQ. This program builds mileage gradually with a strong focus on the long run, while fun workouts on Thursdays will improve speed.
