my marathon training plan. 18 weeks long.

I did this on the principle of running only 4 days a week.
Basically I compiled a bunch of different ideas/methods into one program. I used the long runs from Alan's program (thanks Alan!) combined that with some weekly speedwork (I am trying Yasso 800's this time, I know some people don't like them, but they intrigue me.) I also used a little of Hal Higdon's workouts in there.

I am pretty happy with the results. At the very least, it has gotten me excited and ready to hit the road. It also allows for plenty of time for rest or cross training, as well as some weight training.
