So you've got your eyes set on conquering an ultramarathon? That's no small feat, but you're in the right place. My 13-Week Race Ready Ultramarathon Plan is designed not just to get you to the starting line but to power you through to the finish.

🔬 The Science: Ultramarathons are a different beast, requiring specialized training beyond mere mileage. This plan is steeped in the latest exercise science, focusing on building your aerobic endurance, muscular strength, and metabolic adaptability.

🤝 Expert Coach Support: You're not tackling this ultra journey solo. With this plan, you get direct access to me and my team of certified coaches. Whether you're navigating training hiccups or fine-tuning your race strategy, we're here to provide real-time, science-backed guidance.

🔓 Special Course Access: As a bonus, you'll get exclusive access to a planning module from my "Run Faster with Data" course. This module will help you dial in your race-day strategy, from pacing to nutrition, all backed by data.

📈 The Long Haul: An ultramarathon isn't just a race; it's a journey. This plan is your roadmap, designed to build you up weekly so that come race day, you're not just surviving—you're thriving.

Ready to tackle your ultra the smart way? Let's get you race ready with this 13-Week Plan.

Onward and upward,
Dr. Will 🏃‍♂️🔬

I have been racing, studying and coaching endurance sports for my entire adult life. For me, endurance training isn't an afterthought or a chore, it's a way of life.

Early mornings, blisters, afternoon naps, getting excited about the latest Garmin release, that's who I am.
