Marine Corps 3 Mile 12-Week Plan Training Plan

Training Plan
12 weeks


Designed by an Army Veteran with an 11:55 2-mile personal best help to Marines improve their 3 mile run time. The plan features 3 specific workouts each week, recommendations for cross training and rest days and is adaptable depending on your weekly mileage. You'll start with base building, add in some speed and strength work, and finish with intervals and varying speedwork with long runs that build up to 10 miles. Yes, long runs! They are a cornerstone of any training plan helping the body improve your ability to use oxygen, how you store and utilize energy, and make you stronger for the times we get into more demanding workouts. While there are detailed notes, it helps if you are comfortable with following a training plan on your own as this is a one-time purchase.

Minimum Requirements

Should be running a minimum of 10 miles per week.
