TBR Dreamers receive the TBR Dream Marathon Training Program in their Welcome Kit upon registration. The program is designed by TBR DM co-founder, Coach Jim Lafferty, a former and present-day marathon coach who has guided over 3,300 runners cross the finish line of their first marathons.
The program is a 22-week training program with two weekday runs and one long run in the weekend. The objectives of the program:
- To get TBR Dreamers in sufficient physical condition to complete the marathon comfortably, and make it an overall enjoyable experience;
- To ensure TBR Dreamers do not get injured in the course of training. Marathon training is tough on the body, and nearly 20% of marathoners do get injured in training, mainly through doing too much too fast. This is particularly a worry for a high-powered and super motivated group like TBR Dreamers! We must all exercise not only our muscles but restraint to stick to a gradual build-up plan.
- Finally, to make training as time efficient as possible, so that runners can plan running into our lives, NOT the other way around!
All Bull Sessions (run clinics) and Bull Circles (running talks) are in sync with the TBR Dream Marathon program to provide runners with the information and skills they need as they progress through training.
TBR Dream Marathon training begins SEPTEMBER.
