100k trail intermediate plan 24 weeks including strength and conditioning
Tim PigottAll plans by this Coach
This 24 week running plan will help prepare you for a 100km trail race. Designed by endurance coach, university lecturer, and sports physiotherapist Tim Pigott BSc MSc, this plan encapsulates his education, experience, success and passion for helping thousands of people achieve their dreams.
The training plan starts with the long run at 90minutes and progresses to several 5hr long runs where you can test your kit and nutrition for race day. Most of the long runs are around 3hours to minimise injury risk while focussing on quality running.
The first phase of the plan incorporates a number of drills which then build into a 5 week block of plyometric exercises to prepare the legs for the work later in the program. The frequency of runs then reduces to 5 runs a week but includes extra strength and conditioning work.
Throughout the plan there are nutrition and sport psychology exercises for you to work through, as well as links to the nutrition planning tools we use.
Supporting this additional education, there are links to the films with Claire from 'Wild Ginger Running' to help you prepare for your race. Make sure you subscribe to both my own YouTube channel as well as Wild Ginger Running for regular updates.
All the very best with your training! Let us know how you get on.
