But it was all scattered among lots of posts — some bit-size tips here, a few more there. Good information, but hard to put together into any sort of cohesive plan.
Yesterday I published a huge, 15-page PDF report about what I did to get so much faster. It’s called The BQ Blueprint: 5 Keys to Running Your Fastest Marathon and Qualifying for Boston.
It’s the most I’ve ever written about getting faster and qualifying for Boston, and it’s entirely free to download. You’ll get it immediately when you sign up here.
What’s in the blueprint?
The BQ Blueprint is a “30,000-foot level” guide that brings together the major pieces of the puzzle, so you’ll be able to see the big picture of getting faster, instead of getting caught up in all the nitty-gritty details (more on those in a minute, though).
If you’re in the same boat I was, where you just know you’ve got potential to be so much faster — maybe even qualify for Boston — but it’s not happening, then this report will walk you through the steps I actually took to get there, so that you can apply them to your own running and start seeing real results.
There’s one more thing that a lot of people have told me they like about this report — in it, I detail my progress through my first six marathons, so that you can get a reasonable estimate of what’s possible for your situation. I also explain the major factors that I now believe contributed to each incremental improvement.
And as for all those nitty-gritty details I mentioned?
Well, Jason Fitzgerald, running coach and author at Strength Running and my partner in creating Run Your BQ, has got you covered there. Tomorrow he’s going to be sending out a follow-up report of his own, about what needs to be included in any serious marathon training program (and what doesn’t), for anyone who has signed up to our list.
This stuff won’t be available for long, so don’t miss out. Sign up to download the free BQ Blueprint report, and let me know what you think of it or if you’ve got any questions at all. Enjoy!
