Bart Yasso is a dude with a great and SIMPLE marathon training plan. Although, it sounds like it might be best suited for someone who has run at least one marathon already. His plan is called the Yasso 800's and supposedly if you can run 10, 800's in a row hitting or beating your desired marathon finish time converted to minutes you will achieve that time. So if you want a 3hr finish you need to run each 800 in 3 min with 3 min of jogging recovery in between. I am going to the track today to start working the Yasso 800's into my training. My next marathon is Big Sur in April so we'll see how it works! Oh yea, Bart Yasso also wrote a book that I heard was pretty good, My Life on the Run.
