Marlies Kort Reveals
THE DEEP-ROOTED MISTAKES RUNNERS OVER 40 MUST AVOID, IF THEY WANT TO RUN MARATHONS STRONG
“Too many 40+age-group runners suffer from those long training runs, both mentally and physically.
Traditional high mileage training schedules are wearing you out, like boiling the frog slowly.
You train harder and harder, push yourself, but your not making anyway near the progress you anticipated.
And then, after the fourth or fifth long training run.. you’re stuck.
After more than 25 years of competing and coaching at the highest level, I realized this happens to 80% of all age-group runners over 40, running marathons between 3 1/2 and 5 1/2 hours.
Which is a shame..
And it’s not just the busy life you’re living with work, family and friends. It’s the ‘traditional’ high mileage training approach, that works for the elite, but -boldly said- not for you.
I always felt there had to be a different way”.
That’s why I developed The 9-Mile Marathon training program.
A SMART, NEW, COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING SYSTEM, FOR RUNNERS OVER 40, TO SUCCESSFULLY RUN MARATHONS, WITHOUT THOSE ENDLESS TIME-CONSUMING ‘TRADITIONAL’ WEAR-AND-TEAR 18+ MILE TRAINING RUNS.
“It’s easy to get wrapped up in following those ‘standard’ training schedules. Marlies is a pragmatist. With a strong desire to exploit the new insights. She teaches us how we can do without the old ’no pain no gain’ mantra. It is new, and yes, disruptive. Breaking with what most coaches tell you today. Her program opened my eyes too. There isn’t any other marathon training program like it. Below you’ll find Sandy’s REVIEW, one of my running students. Her last marathon she did The 9-Miler Way. Truly remarkable.”
— Dan Blankenship, Head Coach RVA Team Richmond.
The 9-Mile Marathon training system is based on new endurance-specific concepts and insights.
There’s this little known thing called AFA. Hardly anybody is talking about it. But when you learn it and use it, you’ll see a huge difference in your marathon running.
AFA and ESS (about avoiding fatigue accumulation and how to initiate the metabolic energy supply switch) play an essential role in The 9-Mile Marathon training concept.
In order to make AFA and ESS work, you MUST train a REDUCED number of weekly miles and FEWER miles per long run. At a very specific heart rate, we call MHR. In The 9-Mile Marathon training program you’ll find the training schedules and the MHR test-protocol to figure out your personal marathon running hr ‘sweet-spot’. When you apply this system, you will finish your marathon in the finish time the 9-Mile Training System predicted for you (finish time prediction tables- based on your personal data – are included as well).
Highly reduced risk on injury, increased overall fitness, a stronger body and substantial less stress on your social/private life are the 9-Mile ‘bonuses’.
The 9-Mile Marathon is the ONLY comprehensive training system on the market today to run a solid marathon, based on max 9-mile training runs, a 90-day schedule and 3 to 4 runs per week.
A predictable and repeatable new running science.
So if you’ve been struggling with your marathon running, when you feel wasted after those long runs and progress is staying away, you need to switch to training “The 9-Miler Way”.
“My goal is not to fix what’s not working. My goal is to replace what’s not working with something NEW.
Most people think about running a marathon. Or think about running their next one in a better way.
And for some reason it doesn’t work.
The 9-Mile Marathon training system is based on new concepts. Different from what most ‘traditional’ coaches tell you today.
The 9-Mile Marathon Training System has the power to CHANGE your running life TODAY.”
TRAINING ‘THE 9-MILER WAY’ TRANSLATES TO:
1. Less stress on your social life.
2. Highly reduced risk on injury.
3. Training’s less boring.
4. You’ll feel less tired.
5. Feel motivated all the way.
6. Finish in your predicted time.
7. Faster recovery time.
8. Increased overall fitness.
9. Stronger body, core strength, good feel.
10. Feeling like you can keep on going.
They say what 9-Milers are doing is IMPOSSIBLE… yet it’s happening EVERY SINGLE DAY!
The 9-MileMarathon Training Program is NOT a “start to run” program.
In order to be able to follow my training program you have to run for at least one year, be able to run 6 miles in less than 65 minutes and you have to be in good physical shape according to your doctor, ready to start with the 90-Day marathon training program.
I’m using the numbers and the references from myself, my students and the experiences from others for example purposes only. The numbers and indications stated above are my personal references. Please understand my results are not typical, I’m not implying you’ll duplicate them (or do anything for that matter). I have the benefit of practicing running and triathlon for more than 20 years, and have an established following as a result. Your results will vary and depend on many factors…. including but not limited to your running background, experience, physical condition, talent and training ethic.
All running and running training programs entail risk as well as consistent effort and action from your side. If you’re not willing to accept that, please DO NOT FOLLOW THIS PROGRAM.
