TRAINING PLANS

Training Plans: You can learn about my training plans here. For Beginning Runners, I offer the only completely personalized and individualized plans on the Internet (at least the only ones I know about). You don’t get a canned, one-size-fits-all program like all the other beginning plans. You get one matched to your age, gender, weight, and fitness.


I also offer Half Marathon Training Plans and Marathon Training Plans for runners who want to run from 2 to 5 times a week (enough for most runners). Each plan has a numerical “name” that explains the weeks of training, the runs/week, the length of your first run, the total miles of week 1 and the total miles of the last week. You can see everything at a glance, and easily pick the best plan for you.


For example, the Half Marathon Plan  12-3-2 (7-16) means: 12 weeks long, 3 runs a week, first run of 2 miles, 7 miles miles total in your first week, and 16 miles total in the longest week. Similarly, the Full Marathon Plan 16-4-4 (17-37) means: 16 weeks long, four runs a week, first run of 4 miles, 17 miles total in your first week, and 37 miles total in your longest weeks.


There are many other Half Marathon and Marathon plans here, and all incorporate my unique EnduroPeaking system to limit the chances you will burn out or get injured.
