Preparing for any of the distances now has a clear path to success, as runDisney expert and former Olypmic runner Jeff Galloway again developed all of this year’s plans.
Runners new to the sport, which Galloway defines as those with less than six months of runing experience, will want to start with the “beginner” plan for their distance(s). With just 16 weeks left to go before race weekend, many of the plans will push runners to do a little catching up.
More experienced runners can find a number of different training plans based on race distance, schedule, and even their fall race plans. This year, Galloway offers a plan for marathoners training not only for the marathon on its own but also for those training for the January run following a fall race, specifically the Wine & Dine Half Marathon.
To find the training plan right for you, visit the runDisney training program page. All plans are available for complimentary download. The plans begin with a series of suggestions regarding everything from pacing during training to race day preperations. Then, each plans offers a weekly training that leads up to the race weekend. Some days utilize time-based training and others rely on mileage training.
With 111 days to go, runners anxiously await this season’s runDisney Walt Disney World Marathon weekend. It was held virtually last year. The races begin January 5th with a 5k. The 10k, half marathon and marathon follow in the days after.
