ABOUT THE BOSTON 365 Advanced TRAINING PLAN

The 16-week Boston 365 training program is more aggressive than our regular training plan and assumes an established base of steady-state weekly mileage of 40 miles minimum, and an ability to independently train at your own prescribed pace. 

The Boston 365 Training Program is recommended for experienced runners with a high, steady-state mileage base looking to maximize speed. If you are not racing the Boston Marathon in 2016 but are interested in following this advanced training plan for your spring marathon, please click here.
