    Hello! I completed the 80/20 training program for the Tokyo Marathon. However, it was canceled. I ran a local marathon in Stuart, Fl for 3.39 with a total lift of 135 m. Questions. 1. How to prepare for the Boston Marathon on April 20? 2. What does the decrease in pace by 36 km mean? Prior to this, the average pace was 5.00 min / km. The front muscles of the thigh are heavier, the heart is normal – the whole pulse track is 150?

    Andrei,

    Congratulations on your marathon time! I am sorry about the Tokyo marathon.

    To prepare for Boston, I recommend that you take off running completely this week. Then, pick up the plan again for the final 6 weeks until Boston.

    If I understand correctly, you really began to fade at kilometer 36. Based on your HR and feedback about your legs, I think you would benefit from a strength training plan for the next 7 weeks. That will likely give you the additional muscular endurance necessary to get through that last 6K.

    Thanks! I also intuitively realized that it was necessary to increase strength work. Do you have a 6 week course? Or just take the last 6 weeks from preparing for Tokyo?

    I recommend that you actually plug in the first 6 weeks of one of the strength plans, as they have a progression in terms of sets and repetitions that is built on the previous workouts. I think jumping into the strength plan on ~week 10 might be too risky.

    Thanks! With strength training is understandable. And what about running work? Can I take some part of my 18-week running plan?

    Yes, for running, since you have such a strong base already, use the last 6 weeks of the plan. Simple load the marathon plan again with an end date of April 20.

    Thanks! I’ll do everything. I will write a review after Boston. By the way, today I officially confirmed my participation in the 2020 Berlin Marathon.
