I finished my training plan. It was by no means fast – 5 hours and 43 minutes – but I did run a marathon! 🙃 I ran alone as you do these days and had to wear a mask part of the way because I passed through Frankfurt. It felt amazing to finish.
I am going to take a few days off now and look forward to starting over for my first „official“ marathon in October. I think I will actually go for the Level 1 plan and switch it to power, too. Excited!
Thanks guys. I ended up keeping the Stryd but only now could I also afford to upgrade to a compatible Garmin. The Forerunner 245 should arrive tomorrow. I‘m going to start the Marathon Plan over in a little while and make the switch to power based workouts – I’ll let you know how I get on! 🙃
That’s all the encouragement I needed. I shall go forth and run! Thanks Coach.
Thank you, I really appreciate you answering questions from even the beginners! 🙂
So if I start either plan over – Level 0 again or trade up to Level 1 – should I finish this one up to the tapering week, cut that out (since I won’t be doing a “Race Day” at the end of it) and start over with Week 1? Or do the plan all the way to the end? If I do end up deciding that I should just give it a go and run a marathon by myself – two weeks of only easy runs afterwards, then start another cycle?
Also, do you think I should still do the Marathon Simulator run if I DON’T plan on running a marathon right away? It’s just a couple weeks away and to be fair I would like to know whether I *can* run 32km. At my current speed it will take me about 4 hours which is incidentally what the plan indicates as an estimate.
@winoria, Thank you, I will have a look at the maintenance plan – I didn’t even know it exists, but makes total sense, since most of the time I won’t be training towards an event with a set date anyway. Apparently it’s free right now, might as well get it and see how I get on with it! 🙂
