A common theme in feedback we’ve gotten from our spring marathoners:  ‘I avoided the wall.’ Anka Sawiec of Gaj in Poland shares her result:

Last Sunday I ran the Cracovia Marathon – first marathon in my life 🙂 It took me 3h45min!!!!

Thanks again for a good training plan. Starting the 30th km I was waiting for this mythical wall to come 🙂 But nothing happened! I had enough power to keep my pace for the entire distance and even to accelerate on the last kilometer!

 Congratulations, Anka!

Jacek Mrukowicz Sets Second PR In Two Weeks

Jack Daniels Training Plan customer Jacek Mrukowicz set PRs in back to back weeks while following his marathon training plan. Last week he ran 40:41 in the Maniack 10k, almost two minutes faster than his previous best. This past weekend he ran the Warsaw Half Marathon 1:28:20, almost four minutes faster than his previous best and just ahead of what his plan had him scheduled to finish in.

With less than five weeks to go he’s well on pace to set a huge PR at the Cracovia Marathon. Good luck, Jacek!
