2013 LA Marathon Training Plan

Official training began this week so I thought I'd share my training plan.  Remember from my last post that this time I'm training differently-I'm training by my heart rate and running for a set time instead of distance.

In this plan, I've color coded the types of runs I have, which is explained in the key below the plan.

This marathon is very important to me because I'm running in memory of my Mom and to raise awareness and donations for MDS.  Please consider supporting me, whether it's $1, $10, or $1,000.  Every dollar counts and will fund research for this rare disease that affects less than 1% of the population.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.


  1. Hi Maggie: thanks for sharing your interesting plan. I wonder if you could share what your instructions are, in terms of what heart rates to shoot for, for the LT, AB workouts? Thanks!
