Start with a big picture

The most important thing that you can do at the beginning of your marathon planning is to step back from the daily perspective of training and view the big picture.

This roadmap will allow you to control achievements during your trainings, and mark the accomplished steps to be focused only on the current ones that are still necessary to reach your big goal.

Proceed with a structured timeline

When the broad picture of your training plan is formed, it is time to specify your activities during the whole training cycle. At this step, you can easily add certain steps to your training roadmap, as well as use interactive and visual timeline system based on Gantt chart to accurately prioritize your tasks. With Roadmap Planner, you can add milestones to help you accurately track the progress of each stage along the training path.

Achieve your goal and evaluate results
