Runners dream of running a Personal Record, Sub 5 Hour Marathon, Sub 4, Sub 3 or Boston Qualifier.
Many athletes don’t know how to structure their training in a way that works for them.
Many runners have been stuck in training without progress because of injuries.
Some people have heard of low heart rate training, but don’t know how to use it in their training plan for a race.
Hi, I’m Floris Gierman, founder of the Extramilest website, Youtube and podcast.
I improved my marathon time from 4 hours 11 minutes to 2 hours 44 minutes at the Boston Marathon.
I hit the wall around mile 18 in my first race. I didn’t train right, I felt drained after every workout, and many of my runs were at high intensity. I didn’t have a strategy for race day because my nutrition was all over the place.
I started seeing improvements after I discovered Dr. Phil Maffetone.
I noticed a few things.
I started enjoying my runs and looking forward to the next one. I felt like I could continue running. Was injury free while running. Recovery is fast after my runs. My paces were getting faster every month. It was great to run at a fast pace and feel in control. I have never felt better, my body was in sync. I lost a lot of weight and felt great. I felt stronger in the next race. I ran a PR of 76 minutes, improving from 4:11 to 2:55 on my next marathon.
For the past 8 years, I have written about running and made videos about it, with a million views on my channels so far. I enjoy reading success stories from runners around the world.
Despite many runners experiencing improvements with low heart rate training, I often receive the same questions:
“Do you have a specific training program I can follow?”
“How should I structure my base building and marathon specific workouts? “
“I want to run Sub 3 but I am nervous about losing speed by running at lower HR. Need clarification of exact speed workout details.”
“I tried low HR training, but have to run so slow or take walk breaks to stay within my heart rate zones.”
“It’s very challenging to run when it’s hot and humid for long periods where I live.”
“I have a dream to qualify for the Boston Marathon but can’t imagine racing any faster and holding a specific pace for that long, for example 6:51 min / mile or 4:15 min / km.”
Others struggle with the right nutritional approach and losing weight:
“I want to run a fast marathon but don’t know how to eat right for Marathon Training. What detailed diet plan should I follow?”
“It takes a lot of dedication and willpower to lose weight, how to do it to become a faster athlete?”
“I am struggling to figure out the best way to hydrate and get in calories / sugars during the race.”
I am often asked if I can help runners reach their goals.
Instead of one-on-one coaching, I have developed an extensive video course that provides more info and value than I could with one-on-one coaching, called the Marathon PR Program.
The approach to marathon training is to run smarter, not harder. The elements are focused on for optimal performance.
I’m very excited to introduce the Marathon Personal Record Program
A flexible and structured program to become a stronger, healthier and happier athlete.
