This is a 4-week progressive training plan geared towards the intermediate running athlete who wants to work on increasing their running speed over short distances.

For each week, it includes two demanding run interval workouts for speed. one progressive build running session, two core training video workouts, and active recovery workouts.

This plan will give the best results when the athlete makes speed training a priority. Do it during a time when you do not have a high volume of training overall. You definitely will need to take time to recover in between each running workout because each session will kick your ass.

Once you are completed this training plan, and you want to take your run speed training to the next level, try my Run for Speed 2 for short distances. If you have questions about this training plan or need support, feel free to reach out to me by email: tammy@gofitlife.ca
