Low Heart Rate Training Plans
Since I took up Low Heart Rate Training (LHR or Maffetone Method) in 2011, I’ve had so many questions from friends and fellow runners. I’ve shared my experiences and my tips, but there was one gaping hole. A MAF training schedule.
He doesn’t provide one and there isn’t a set template, but after years of doing this and coaching other runs I have a system that seems to work. I’ve put it together here along with some basic tips that are important to implement Low Heart Rate training.
You can get TONS of information off my how to implement LHR training page, but if you’re feeling stuck these MAF training plans can help you get moving.
LOW HEART RATE TRAINING PLANS
Why these plans?
You’re tired of hitting the same wall over and over again? Or maybe just sick of the constant fatigue during training, while knowing you have more to give.
OR maybe you’re one of the smart ones who knows starting here is building a foundation that will last.
I thought about splitting this up in to a number of downloads, but instead I’m including them all in this plan. You’ll find a Level 1 and Level 2 half marathon plan, along with Level 1 and 2 marathon training plans. I think by seeing them, you’ll find out how similar the training is at all levels and where you might be able to make adjustments that best fit your needs.

This 29 page ebook is not designed to replace the Big Book of Endurance training by Dr. Phil Maffetone. Instead, it’s a supplement to the many questions I often receive on how much to run and how to really turn it in to a training plan for a race.
This book also addresses when to race and what to do after a race to continue progressing your pace.
