Plan Description

This plan prepares you for a trail marathon.

In partnership with PrecisionHydration, this plan includes a 15% discount for their products. It is also advisable to use CORE to plan and prepare your race nutrition. Details for both are included in the plan.

You should have a good background level of fitness with experience at the long trail and fell racing (which is often a prerequisite for entry into these races).

To get the most out of this program it is advisable to use a heart rate monitor to help guide your intensity, although reference to the Borg scale is used with attached additional information. Sessions are set as time-based rather than distance due to running on trails and fells for most of your training. Key sessions in this plan are built using RPE (Borg 20point scale) and structured workouts based on your Maximum HR as your guide.

It is advisable to supplement with your own strength program on top of this, there are core and stability tests built into the program for you to assess your own needs.

This plan is based around at least 1 rest or active recovery day per week, and only 1 run per day. You will do regular 2hr runs building to 2hr30 as your longest run.
