On avg the plan works off a basis of 4 run sessions and 3 full recovery day - with the hourly training load ranging from 4-8 hours a week.


NB it is strongly advised that athletes incorporate other non run based exercise such as yoga, pilates and/or stretching to minimise risk of injury

Customer promise
I want you to be set for success with a plan that is right for you. So, if after the first few weeks of training, you feel over/under challenged by the training load - I will switch you free of charge to an equivalent plan from the Beginner/Intermediate or Advanced plans from my catalog.
