3 marathons in 1 months? Train like world-class athlete Jane Fardell.

Australian long-distance runner and On athlete Jane Fardell is the star at European marathons. Exclusively for On runners, Jane set up a 6-week training plan, bringing each runner to the next level. 

Rome, Paris, Zurich: In only one month, Jane entered three different races all over Europe and showed an impressive performance: Looking effortless, she crossed each finish line within less than 2:47h.

This didn’t happen by chance. Jane’s key to success: the perfect running shoe, a good recovery and an efficient training. With your Ons, you already took care of the right running shoes. With Jane's training plan, you’ll now increase your pace as well as build up your endurance. The plan is suitable for experienced runners who want to improve their 10K time or who are training for half and full marathons.

The 6-week plan is split into two parts, each consisting of 3 sessions per week: A speed session, a build as well as an endurance run. Start a 3-week training with the “Start” plan. Continue your training for another 3 weeks with the “Keep on” plan to push your performance even further.
