Marathon Training Plan
The following 2 plans were geared toward training for the 2008 Marine Corps Marathon. Several members of SRC trained and ran the race this year (our results). These plans can be used for any marathon:

First-Timer Marathon Plan and Time-Goal Marathon Plan

Half Marathon Training Plan
Our resident coach Alex Bronzini has adapted a 10 week training plan, geared towards preparing for the MORE Half Marathon many of our members ran in April 2008. The plan can be adapted to any half marathon of course; the same principles and timelines apply.

Alex's 10-week Half-Marathon Program

This program can be adapted easily to runners at any level of performance, from slow to medium to fast pace. The basic program stays the same, you simply adjust your running pace to match the pace that you are most comfortable with and which matches your race time goal (if any).

Miscellaneous Stuff ...
