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 26K. Time is around 4-7 QUALITY hours per week This assumes that any commute running or fun running is done very easy and over relatively short distances. The progressive programme focuses on speed early in the week throughout the plan, with varied tempo, hill and sub threshold work during the week, leaving the weekend for varied and longer runs. There is ample recovery time and some sessions are optional. Incorporates final week race taper
