A guaranteed 'get faster' programme comprising UK National Performance Centre speed work as used by the squad there, including a couple of very well known athletes, challenging hill sessions and weekend longer but manageable distance runs that constantly challenge the energy systems. If you are looking for a plan to bring you PBs or to get you up to speed for a race then this is it.

Plan includes around 3-4 quality run sessions a week, with one being optional - longest run depending on fitness will be around 10K. Time is around 3-5 hours per week so can be used in conjunction with your own other activities club or personal. This assumes that any commute running or fun running is done very easy and over relatively short distances

Do the work, no more no less, and we're pretty sure you'll be setting your best ever run times at the end. You'll need to be committed to getting better but many have completed the programme with great results. Once you're over the first 2/3 weeks you'll go from strength to strength!

This is a run programme suitable for regular runners, running anything between 5 and 10k in a session. It comprises a range of tests, for speedwork and to set up your threshold HR, from which all your customised training zones are derived. You will need a heart rate monitor or device, and an account for your fitness tracker that will connect with Training Peaks so you can see your progress

It contains between 3-4 key sessions a week, including one optional, and is meant to replace completely your regular run programme; running junk miles or sessions without a specific goal in mind will just slow your progress Complete this and you will be the fastest and fittest you've been in a long while, maybe forever thus far!

Sample Day 1

TEST - KEY [Sub Max] RUN THRESHOLD

This will calculate or estimate your current fitness and LTHR for run without the need for an early season max testing session

You perform two sub max tests on a flat course or on treadmill. Use the same course, and similar conditions if you do outside.

Do 2 x 20 minute tests with appropriate rest in between, if you are unfit, or detrained please do 2 x 10 minutes instead

OR TEST - * KEY RUN [Max] THRESHOLD

PLEASE READ

Find a flat course Go run as fast as you can at the most constant pace you can for 30 minutes. OR run on the track in a similar way. You MUST use a heart rate monitor and device to record your HR

How to input your results into Training Peaks here:https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ux2rlzr0f60a34p/AADZU70LewxD1_umRJU_J8Ika?dl=0

From this Test you need THREE results:

a) How far you ran in that 30 minutes, not including warm up [result for specific Lovetri Swimwerkx sessions*] - Use this result for the spreadsheet attached * see last comments

b) Your average HR for the last 20 minutes of that run which equals threshold HR, THR in our sessions - For YOU TO INPUT into Training Peaks before starting programme

c) Your average pace for the the full 30 minutes [threshold pace] - For YOU TO INPUT into Training Peaks before starting programme

This test is IMPORTANT as ALL your sessions will then be personalised to your level of fitness and will automatically update as you get fitter to stay challenging! Use the result above in the spreadsheet under the paperclip top right to establish your correct effort levels.

If you are familiar with recording this data and finding the results that's great. For those of you who are not so skilled a simple way to calculate these figures for input into Training Peaks is to simply set your device to record at the start of the 30 minute run. Stop it at the end. Upload to your normal online device website which will send the results to Training Peaks
