Below is the plan I used for the 2012 Chicago Marathon.
For reference, week 1 is the week of 5/30-6/6.
I'm starting my weeks on Monday's because that's how DailyMile rolls and I'm a follower.
I looked at a TON of different plans and kinda picked over and added and removed and re-added and changed and blended to finally come up with this. I'll admit I have almost no intention of following this plan. Ok, that sounds weird...but, I know me. I know I'm going to most definitely add more cross training in and likely move the days around to suit my schedule. While I'm Type A to a scary extreme, I know it's summer and shit's gonna come up so I'm trying to be a little laid back about this and just tell myself that as long as I complete at LEAST what's on this plan... anyway/day I can... then I'll be cool with that.
So, there it is. In all its scary glory.
Chicago, let's do this.
