Grand Canyon R2R2R Super Plan for Trail Runners Updated for Fall 2021
Scree Factory Alpine EnduranceAll plans by this Coach
Run the R2R2R! This 24 week plan includes running, crosstraining, bodyweight strength, HIIT, plyometrics, and mobility.If you're planning an October R2R2R, you can skip ahead 4-6 weeks. I've also just combined the Super Plan for Trail Runners with the Flatlander plan, so you'll see both the trail climbing options and treadmill incline workouts.
Goals: Increase mileage & elevation gain, strength, impact accumulation resilience, prevent injury, and have FUN so when you get to the canyon, you're ready to do a continuous R2R2R!
To complete this plan, you'll need:
To already be running 30 miles/week
To already be doing at least 8 mile long runs
Access to trails that are at least hilly at least once or twice a week OR a treadmill
There is weekly speedwork, but it's pretty abbreviated with the purpose of neuromuscular gains and building strength and resilience. If you have questions about planning a Grand Canyon trip, logistics, or are wishing you had more support, consider one-on-one coaching preparation.
