Here at Salty Running, we’ve talked about a myriad of ways to train in our training logs and recently in our popular marathon training plan reviews. So far we’ve taken a look at Hansons, Pete Pfitzinger and Lydiard training plans. Now, we’re going to talk about Greg McMillan.
I know quite a bit about Greg McMillan’s theories about optimal run training because I’ve been training with McMillan Running since 2013, under one of Greg’s protégées, coach Emily Harrison. Under coach Emily’s care, I’ve PR’d in every distance I raced, from 5K to 100 miles. McMillan Running is for runners of all levels and distances, but his expertise seems to be the marathon.
McMillan training plans have most definitely worked for me, but how do you know if they’re right for you?
