“Road To Your 26.2 – Part 1” Peloton Marathon Training Program For Runners

Introducing “Your Road to 26.2 – Part 1,” an exciting Peloton marathon training plan. It’s the initial step in a 3-phase program meticulously crafted to guide you towards marathon success.

In this first phase, spanning 6 weeks, we’re focused on gradually increasing your mileage. On those long run days (Day 7), there won’t be a specific run or class tailored to accompany your journey. Instead, we recommend you embark on a warmup run beforehand to prepare yourself for the upcoming long run challenge.

As for the most extended run you’ll tackle during Part 1, it will be a 10-mile adventure. Lace up your shoes and get ready to conquer those miles!

Here are the 2nd and 3rd parts:

Update Alert! In July 2022, Peloton gave this program a fresh makeover. They switched out the strength for runner’s classes across all the weeks. Moreover, they mixed things up on the 6th day, replacing the 20-minute run with classes led by coaches who weren’t part of the original launch team.

So, the program outlined below will feature the shiny new version.

Program Overview

Program Description

Let me share Peloton’s official description of “Road to Your 26.2 Part 1” with you:

It’s a path toward marathon greatness with a strategic approach!
