Description: Designed for runners looking to complete their first marathon. Runners are able to run a successful marathon running only 3-4 days a week of between 30 and 3 hours following a specific training plan, and cross-training.

This will get you running and at the end of the week you will test your fitness on the 4th run. This can be completed on a flat route or in the gym on a treadmill. Record your time and search google for Jack daniels Vdot calculator. Input your time in and this will calculate your running paces and training zones Runners are encouraged to either cross-train or complete easy runs on other days of the week.
