Why is it called The 9-Miler way?
Running maximum 9-mile training runs is the cornerstone of the training program. But there is more. Much more. The 9-Mile Marathon is a carefully balanced, comprehensive SYSTEM, based on more than just running less miles. Finding your MHR, your marathon heart rate sweet spot is essential. We do that with a test protocol -explained n the program- you can do yourself (with an explanatory video). AFA (the concept of Accumulated Fatigue Avoidance) and ESS (initiating the metabolic Energy Supply Switch) are dominant factors as well. Furthermore there is the importance of Cross training, getting rid of the rigid (both physical and mental) and 9-mile specific speed- and interval training (full recovery type of interval sets). All 'n all a cleverly balanced thoroughly thought-through concept, very effective, highly efficient.
