Lost your speed or just feel slow? This 6-week speed module plan is perfect for you. I’ll put your through my proven speed-building training sequence and do it safely so you stay healthy – something I know runners doing speedwork often worry about.
You’ll build your leg turnover so faster running starts to feel easer and you’ll notice you have a bit more pep in your step. Then, you’ll carry this new leg turnover into VO2 max repeats – you know the ones where you challenge yourself as much mentally as physically to run fast. But, I’ll do this in a fun way with a variety of workouts so you stay excited for each workout and by the end of the training plan, you will have improved leg turnover, increased VO2max and the mental toughness that will serve you well in your next training plan.
Before starting, you should be able to run 30 minutes on your regular runs and at least 45 minutes on your long runs.
For each and every run, I'll provide the exact pace range for each run/workout (integrated from the McMillan Running Calculator). I'm also making your plan really flexible so it can flow with your life. You can easily move runs around based on your life schedule.
FREE PREHAB INCLUDED
In addition to the run training, I'm also going to have you perform our core training routine that syncs with your run training as well as my form drills to help you improve your running form and learn to run fast. These "prehab" programs are included with your plan and build you into a strong, supple, injury-resistant runner.
