A guaranteed 'get faster' programme comprising UK National Performance Centre speed work as used by the squad there, including a couple of very well known athletes, challenging hill sessions and weekend longer but manageable distance runs that constantly challenge the energy systems. If you are looking for a plan to bring you PBs or to get you up to speed for a race then this is it. There are a series of mid week bricks toward the mid point of the programme that then change to longer race specific weekend bricks towards the end finishing with a race simulation.
Plan includes around 3-4 quality run sessions a week, with one being optional - longest run depending on fitness will be around 22K. Time is around 4-7 quality hours per week so can be used in conjunction with your own other activities club or personal. This assumes that any commute running or fun running is done very easy and over relatively short distances
All our plans offer proven results, and have been used by elites to novice level athletes in multi- discipline to single sport to achieve personal bests and outstanding performances. Race proven by the Lovetri |Swimwerkx team and hundreds of athletes worldwide. The library features full multi-discipline programmes and ‘boost’ programmes, allowing you to focus on your favourite sport or the one you want to improve the most. You’ll find a programme to suit at www.racestronger.com that allows you to mix metric train, with power and heart rate, or train using your preferred effort measurement method. Why not buy a plan and take advantage of our tailoring offer, meaning we can swap around for a small fee the types of sessions.
Do the work, no more no less, and we're pretty sure you'll be setting your best ever run times at the end. Do the strength work and plyo to ensure you've got the edge. You'll need to be committed to getting better but many have completed the programme with great results. Once you're over the first 2/3 weeks you'll go from strength to strength!

Sample Day 1
Find a flat course Go run as fast as you can at the most constant pace you can for 30 minutes. OR run on the track in a similar way. You MUST use a heart rate monitor and device to record your HR
How to input your results into Training Peaks
From this Test you need TWO results:
a) Your average HR for the last 20 minutes of that run which equals threshold HR, THR in our sessions - For YOU TO INPUT into Training Peaks before starting programme
c) Your average pace for the the full 30 minutes [threshold pace] - For YOU TO INPUT into Training Peaks before starting programme
