The 100 Day Marathon Plan is a book written by one of the best Norwegian runners. As a runner, Marius Bakken was dedicated to training and improving. This is mainly why he also decided to study the method of training that Kenyan and Italian runners practice.

Dr. Bakken noticed that he was the fastest non-Kenyan runner for 5000 m events. He then decided to go to Kenya and learn more of their training methods. He also went to Italy to train with the best Italian runners. He ran in competitions until he decided to pursue his studies in 2007.

Kenyan method

Kenyans are known for their performance in long distance running. The methods that they use for marathon training has been working for almost a generation. Dr. Bakken shares what he learned from them in his book.

Italian method

Italian runners have learned how to be their best during competitions. Their training makes sure that they are not tired or over-training for any event. Their methods are honed to make sure that a runner performs at their peak during any event.

World class training

The book aims to hone the skills of any marathoner. Through reading it, any runner can practice methods employed by Kenyans and Italians. This is the best combination that a runner can learn and improve from.

The plan indicated on the book is meant to make any runner perform at international level. The book and employing the training methods in it can get them there.

Twenty five supplemental videos are also available to any person who buys the book. These are instructional videos that can further facilitate training.

Anyone who purchases the book also gets access to Dr. Bakker.  The book is merely a part of the package. Through buying it, a runner can ask Dr. Bakker about anything regarding the training methods and running. It is an e-book which means that there is no need to wait and one can get it as soon as possible.

    I saw a feature on African (not sure which country) runners training. Yes. they’re more on long-distancing running on hills Endurance is there especially on high altitude terrains. I think it’s good technique to share,

    I love running because it makes me fit and at the same time, healthier…But it requires also to have persistence and consistency…
