Hey Runners,

Ready to go from zero to hero? My 30-Week Base2Race Training Plan is your ultimate roadmap to peak performance, combining the best of my 12-Week Base Phase, 13-Week Race Ready, and Maintenance/Recovery plans. Here's what you're in for:

📈 Weeks 1-12: The Base Phase
The Science: We kick off with a focus on aerobic development, strength training, and metabolic efficiency. This is your foundation, and it's rock solid.
Expert Coach Support: Got questions? We've got answers. You're not alone on this journey.

🔥 Weeks 13-25: Race Ready
The Science: Now that you've got a strong base, it's time to add in race-specific workouts, speedwork, and fine-tuning your nutrition.
Special Course Access: Unlock a planning module from my "Run Faster with Data" course to dial in your race-day strategy.

🌱 Weeks 26-30: Maintenance/Recovery
The Science: Whether you've crushed your race or are bouncing back from an injury, these weeks focus on recovery and maintaining your fitness.
Flexibility: Not into post-race recovery? Clone Week Three into Weeks One and Two for a maintenance-only approach.

🤝 Throughout: Expert Coach Support
Your Questions Answered: Whether it's mid-plan adjustments or last-minute race-day queries, we're here for you.

🔓 Bonus
Lifetime Access: This plan is yours to keep. Run it again or use it as a reference for future training.

Ready to embark on a transformative running journey? Let's get you from base to race with this comprehensive 30-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.
