Advanced Group

Welcome to the Advanced Group! This group is designed for:

  • Experienced runner: 3+ marathons in last 3 years, 25+ miles per week
  • Pace: 8:30/mile or faster

The Advanced Group will target the Chevron Houston Marathon with a target pace range of 8:30/mile or faster. The Advanced training plan is designed for experienced runners and is only for full marathons because of the unique training requirements of racing longer than 20 miles. The training plan is designed to peak at the Chevron Houston Marathon target race. If you plan to run more than one marathon during the season, we suggest allowing at least 12 weeks between races in order to recover and prepare for the second race.
