What is the big secret

I went to the Luke's Locker marathon orientation program in Fort Worth Thursday night.

Nice to know that I can get a 20 percent discount on anything in the store (except for Garmin items) just for signing up, and nice to know that I'll have support on long runs and can email the "coaches" about any problems I may be having.

But what I really wanted to get my hands on was the marathon schedule. The formula that makes their program so successful.

The week by week chart of how they were going to make me a sub 4-hour marathoner. There was no schedule. At least not Thursday night. They said they'd give us the schedule when we showed up for our first "group run" in two weeks. And even then, we'd have to use a password to get the program online. And even then, it would only be in one or two week blocks.

Am I missing something? I mean, what's the big secret? You can Google any of the other successful marathon programs, NYCRR, Boston, Hal Higdon, etc. But Luke's Locker? They are treating theirs as if it were some classified FBI document.

I guess I'll have to wait another two weeks to let you in on the details.

I think to punish them for trying to keep it so secret, you should publish it on your blog in one or two week increments. I would LOVE to have a sub-4 marathon.

Then again, I'll probably impulsively sign up for a marathon next weekend and not train anyway...

Weird... I'm with Laura, though. You should do that.

Maybe you could convince them to share the whole thing. You could tell them that you need to be able to plan around holidays and vacation. I mean, if you look at my training sched, you can totally tell when I'm going to be traveling.

I'm very curious.

I'll have to launch an investigation and get the "scoop" on the marathon program.
