The 17 week training program that improved my marathon time from 2:55 to 2:26!

The 17 week training program that improved my marathon time from 2:55 to 2:26!
Running and completing a marathon is one of the hardest undertakings that any runner can undertake. Cutting 29 minutes off a marathon time is even harder. It needs well thought and lengthy preparations. You can get the ebook here.

The training program should be made to incorporate track and road speed workouts, hills, long runs, tempo runs, enough sleep, among others.
In the ebook is the program that I used to ensure that I was able to improve my time on the same marathon course the following year. I didn’t have any specific minutes to shed off, but was able to cut 29 minutes from the time I ran last year! This should be a great testimony in itself of the effectiveness of the training I went through and I do believe it is going to work for anyone who is interested in improving their marathon times drastically.
Note. It is going to be hard training, but one should listen to their body and try and make the proper adjustments to fit them.
My target race was the ScotiaBank Ottawa Marathon.
I am about to embark on another journey using the same training program next year for another huge time improvement and I hope to be doing this with those who will read this program and decide to incorporate it in their programs too. After all, it is the typical training program in almost every training group in Kenya.
