Sample Training Plan for the 40 Miler

Here is a sample 40 mile training plan.  Adjust it to fit into your schedule.  I based it on running 4 days a week because I never run more than that, but if you feel compelled to add a day, go for it.  I would suggest doing some type of moderate speedwork on the Tuesday, and make at least a part of your Thursday run a hill workout (parking towers, stairs, something). 


  1. Hi there! This plan looks like something my busy life would be able to handle but I’m curious if you have used this plan. How did it work for you? Did you find that the weekly mileage was enough to prepare your body for the long runs?
