***Plan includes Athletic Profile send to you. Submit your results to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive it within 5 working days***
This plan consists of two weeks of testing which will establish your current strengths and weaknesses as a runner. All runners I coach must complete this period the first time we work together, so we establish the correct starting point.
Doing anything else and you risk chasing off into your full training plan blindly and hitting a plateau later because a key weakness was ignored early on.
This plan is supported by a manual describing the tests and the logic behind them. Upon completion and submission of the results to me, you will receive your 'Athletic Profile'.
This plan works even better if you are using a Power Meter for running. In this case, you will receive your Athletic Profile based on the power readings instead of the pace readings, which gives a slightly better illustration of reality.
I recommend to continue to my 'My capability plan - Work Capacity Testing' plan after you have completed this plan. That will flesh out the next layer in understanding yourself - namely how much volume you can tolerate currently of different key intensities and how much recovery you need after this exposure. Armed with this knowledge you and/or your coach can make the best possible decisions about where to go next and how.
