0 to 30: Base Building from Couch to Adventure


Scree Factory Alpine Endurance

All plans by this Coach


20 Weeks

Plan Description

This plan builds very slowly, from no running to 30 mile weeks with an 8 mile long run, so you'll be ready to start one of the big mountain or Grand Canyon training plans! Taking precautions for injury prevention, building balanced front/back body and side/side strength, mobility, and building mileage in a healthy way is at least as important when you're first starting out as it is when you're preparing for something big! This is a 20 week plan that builds very slowly for new runners with big dreams, ending in a recovery week so you can roll right into one of the bigger training plans.
You do not need run experience to start this plan. If you have questions, email me at
