    I don’t tweet…(and don’t intend to) can we download the training plans some other way?

      Hi,

      I’ve been meaning to change this for a little while. The links for the marathon training schedules now just take you straight to the PDF rather than to a Pay with a Tweet link. Let me know if you have any troubles accessing the files, and I hope you find the schedules useful.
