Plan Description

If you’ve ever found it difficult to stick to an intensive training plan for a race, or don’t know where to start don’t worry, you’re not alone.

For nearly all runners who have jobs to go to and families to take care of which of course means nearly all runners. it can be next to impossible to adhere to a training plan that requires you to run multiple days each week, many weeks and months in a row.

That’s why we’ve developed this 16-week training plan specifically for beginner level runners and people whose schedules don’t allow for running five days a week. This plan consists of three runs a week and one body weight strength session a week. THis plan is totally flexible and the sessions can be fit around your schedule and what ever day race day falls on.

The sessions are the minimum requirement and if you have time to add in extra sessions be careful to not overload your body too early in the training and build it up gradually also.
