“What if I put in months of training and still miss the sub 3:30 marathon barrier?”
The sub 3:30 marathon barrier is not for the faint of heart. It is a standard that very few athletes achieve and for good reason, much is required.
Racing results come to those who train specifically and that is to run under 8:23 mile pace over the classic 26.2 mile distance.
Far too many runners think higher mileage is the answer and yet put in the work and still miss their goal—frankly — no one has time for that. Your goal is to use leverage and get better results, faster.
There are athletes around the world capable of breaking the 3:30 marathon barrier but often times fall short by seconds or several minutes. This can be corrected. What happens usually to marathoners?
They put in the heavy mileage, often times at paces not sufficient enough to get the results they are seeking, grow impatient and resort to thinking they may just not have what it takes. We will change that with this course.
Do you feel that your rate of progress has been too slow? Do you feel you are going backwards more than going forwards or that it may take years to see the progress you’re aiming for?
Have you tried speeding up the process to achieve success by purchasing online cookie-cutter marathon training schedules that do not provide the results you are seeking? If so, you are not alone. There are countless marathoners around the world stating their results work promising new personal bests. This course isn’t a cookie-cutter plan nor am I going to be easy on you. What you are aiming to do is run an elite time. 3:30 is not going to fall on your lap.
You may have watched YouTube videos, read blog posts or listened to podcasts trying to implement what you’ve learned. Kudos to you. At least you are a winner and making winning moves in order to make it to the next level in your training and racing. But you tried to make it work. Somehow.
This is your last hope, the hail Mary. If this investment doesn’t work, you’ll be back at square one.
And then … it doesn’t work.
So, you followed a cookie-cutter marathon training schedule. You missed you’re a personal best by a few minutes, but your dreams of breaking the sub 3:30 marathon barrier are once again placed on hold.
Thinking back, you resign yourself in knowing you may have been too impatient, ran too many miles and didn’t seek out a 3:30 marathon course from someone who has run an elite marathon time.

individual attention and thoughtful coaching
Luke Watson, 2:15 marathoner, 3:57 miler
Let’s be real, how does an athlete sustain 8:23 mile pace over 26.2 miles?
Putting in high mileage is one thing. Implementing a strategy to sustain 8:23 or faster per mile pace over the 26.2-mile distance takes more than interest. Only the committed who are following proven training strategies used by the world’s top coaches and athletes will make this goal a reality.
Maintaining and being able to hold under 8:23 per mile pace is an entirely different world compared to running a marathon for fun.
When you decide fully commit to running a 3.29.59 marathon, you’re hit from all angles as to what the correct process is to finally achieve this goal.
When you focus on sustaining this pace over the marathon distance, you’re faced not only with what types of workouts are needed to follow on a routine based but also finding out how to not slow down during the race.Every marathoner wants to run faster but only those all in and fully committed will invest to ensure their goals become reality. It is very easy to give in especially since you are going after such a fast time.
You feel there is so much noise in the world of running. What is the proper amount of mileage needed to be complete each week? What specific workouts should you be doing? What paces should you be running at during your long runs? It all adds up on the athlete. What if there was a way to bypass all the unknowns and follow a step-by-step proven plan taught by some of the world’s top distance running coaches?
Have you ever considered hiring an elite marathoner to help guide you under the 3:30 marathon barrier? Often times it can feel like you are looking for a needle in a haystack. And when you finally find him/her, the investment in hiring an athletic consultant makes you think twice.
It might seem like you’re left with few options or that it may be better just to forget about investing and following a free cookie-cutter plan that may not even work.
But there’s one more option left.
"I have witnessed Nate's determination in training. He cares about the athletes he mentors and his training philosophy works. I recommend him!"
Dan Browne, 2:11 marathoner, two-time Olympian
What if you could break the 3:30 marathon barrier with less mileage and work?
What holds many runners back from breaking the 3:30 marathon barrier isn’t lack of ability. It is poor planning and rushing the system. You can always find time to put in the mileage and prepare to run faster but what do the best do to recover from their hard training? Why do some marathoners make it look so easy? What are they doing that you are not?
The only thing that has held you back up to this point is improper habits. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. It’s time to break habits of the past and start using leverage instead.
Now just imagine what you could do if you started training like world-class marathoner and followed a proven step-by-step system the world’s best follow? This same system is how I dropped my marathon time from 2.43.36 to 2.19.35.
Imagine the elation and relief you would feel if you could improve your lactate tolerance in such a way that you did not slow down during your race and finished full of energy. You cross the finish line several seconds to minutes faster than 3 hours and 30 minutes.
Imagine following the same training strategies a sub 2.20 marathoner used to help you get the result you have been searching for.
The feeling of confidence and taking control of your marathon performance is literally just a click away. Because I have something to tell you.

Learn how to dominate 8:23 mile pace over the entire marathon distance.

I’m sure you’ve read countless articles, books and listened to others about how to run faster over the marathon distance.

This is a science and running fast is an art form. One that you will achieve through this course.
There are plenty of “experts” sharing advice on how to minimize the “slow down” effect, no one talks sufficiently enough about the power of mindset, proper heart rate zones you need to be at during easy, moderate and highly anaerobic efforts. It’s time to stop trying to find the solution which often times can feel like finding a needle in a hay stack.

This course took nearly a year to complete. I created it because I am committed to the athletes who invest in their personal development. I, too, invested in several course over the years just like you. My goal was much like yours and that was to learn from those who had done what I aspired to do.
This course has come to fruition due to receiving requests from athletes who read my blog and wanted personal coaching. These same athletes were seeking better ways to achieve greater results. I want to show you what you need to do to destroy the 3:30 marathon barrier, and I want you to use the tips taught in this e-course and so you can see for yourself how using leverage can create the lasting results you have sought after in your performances.
I’ve been planning to launch the Sub 3:30 Marathon Training Plan Blueprint course for nearly a year. And to make it a reality, I made the decision to invest all of my energies and time into creating an elite and professional course that could get more marathoners around the world under the 3:30 marathon barrier.
The knowledge I’m sharing in this course is what I’ve been taught over the past 28 years working with world-class coaches and elite marathoners. The processes I’ll teach you in the class are the same strategies I followed to run 2.19.35.
That’s why I completely trust you’ll succeed if you follow what I cover in this course.
But if you follow the strategies, complete the workouts, stay focused and implement and follow the 10-day taper and STILL don’t feel like you’re making any progress, I’ll personally work one-on-one with you and identify the pain point giving you issues. And if that won’t work either, I’ll give you a full refund. I’m all in for your success.
The Time is NOW to become a 3.29.59 marathoner.
You’re just a step away from knowing the exact steps needed to finally break the 3:30 marathon barrier.
You’re just a click away from having 100% confidence in knowing what sustaining 8:23 mile pace for 26.2-mile entails. A click away from knowing exactly what you need to do to minimize slowing down and maintaining your goal marathon race pace for the entire race distance.
You’re so close, you can feel the success of tomorrow.
