This may be a stupid question but the plan that Zeke posted from Beck only has 3 weeks listed. I’m not understanding something here.

“This schedule is based on a three-week cycle; when training for a marathon, three such cycles should be employed, followed by a three-week taper.”

So you’d go through the 3-week cycle, 3 times, then add a 3-week taper for a total of 12 weeks.

Thanks for clarifying. And yes it was a stupid question. I gues I could have read a little.

Thanks,
