Runbayou - Survey for the 2008 Houston Marathon training program

Ladies and Gentlemen:

It's getting close to that time again. If you are interested in marathons and/or marathon training programs, please take a moment to respond to these four (4) questions. If you know of others who may be interested, please forward this to them.

Are you planning to run the Houston Marathon in January 2008 and/or another marathon from November 2007 to March 2008?

Would you be interested in the Runbayou marathon training program?

If yes, please answer the following questions.

The speedwork sessions would be held at Memorial Park at 5:00am on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting Tuesday August 28, 2007. Would you attend these sessions?

If there is interest, and if there is a Runbayou marathon training program, would you like to have your name added to the 2008 Houston Marathon Runbayou distribution list?

That was easy......


The Runbayou marathon training program in a nutshell.

Phase 2 - Primary speed sessions are repetition running (200s, 400s, & some hills)
Phase 3 - Primary speed sessions are interval pace training (800s & 1200s) plus tempos and thresholds
Phase 4 - Primary speed sessions are marathon pace runs plus tempos and thresholds
