Run Durability Progression


Vision Quest Coaching

All plans by this Coach


8 Weeks

Plan Description

Runners are often the athletes most prone to injury. This can be the result of biomechanics and incorrect form, but it is often the result of building mileage and intensity too quickly and too aggressively.

Focusing on durability first through short, frequent and easy runs is a strategy that many runners can benefit from to lay a groundwork of fitness and resilience that will allow them to remain healthy through the training for events from 5k to marathon, along with ultra-distance running and triathlon competition.

This 8-week progression is ideal for the off-season when training stresses are low and the demands of competition are far away. Complete this progression first and then progress from there into the more typical training for your distance and discipline.
