What is the basic philosophy of the 18 week marathon training program?

My goal in programming is to keep the work simple, manageable and to the point. On the B78 running program you will do three basic types of workouts. One is designed as a pace/effort specific workout aimed at building your ability to run at your desired race pace for the desired length of time. The second type of workout will address your higher end threshold/aerobic capacity (hard efforts). The physiological benefits of training at this level of intensity are significant. The third type of workout is designed purely for frequency, technique and impact tolerance.
