What People Are Saying:

  • "Most marathon  training schedules are rigid. The 100 Day Marathon Plan deals with flexibility and gives runners options. I especially enjoyed the marathon race-day tips and how you combine the Italian and Kenyan schools of thought into one program.

    I like the use of Lydiard-like periodization with a build up from the 5K to the marathon itself. All types of runners would benefit from this type of marathon work. That's the best thing about this program: It's for everyone!

    It builds you up for the marathon, step-by-step instead of getting you to think about the marathon from day one. I've never seen anything like this before"

  • "Hello Marius this is a letter of thanks to you. On Sunday in the London Marathon I set a new life time best running 2.47.34.

    I should point out to anyone reading this that I have been running for 17 years and Marathons for 11 years! I am now 49 years old and going by what many runners say should be slowing down, yet on your program. I ran 3 mins 39 sec faster than last year and 1 min 18 sec faster than my old P.B. set way back in 2003 when I was only 42 years old! 

    I felt stronger than ever before in the last 6 miles and overtook runner after runner in my charge for the line, infact I think only one runner went passed me in those last 6 miles!

    I have found your 100 day plan enjoyable and challenging, but at the same time because you never train harder than 10k pace I was able to recover quickly and not overtrain and dig myself into a whole I could not get out of! Also because your training plan changes from week to week found my body kept getting stronger throughout the entire program!

    I had no injuries or illness, a very good sign that shows how sensible and clever your program is! I now intend to follow your training programme up to next years London marathon, where I believe I can continue to improve and run 2.45 or better at the age of 50! I'm happy to recommend your 100 day marathon plan to anybody who is serious about running faster, if I can do it then anyone can! 

    Thanks again Marius, you have reversed the aging process for me:)
