Training

Our training philosophy is rooted in a gradual progression of mileage and workout intensity to allow your body plenty of time to adapt. Marathon Matt is offering a special discounted rate to join his Run Club. If you choose to sign up, you will be included on his weekly runs (locations and schedule will be emailed out on a weekly basis) and post run activities.

Not ready for the full program? We'll provide you with a training framework that you can run at your own pace.

Here’s what a typical training week in your second month of training might look like:
