Please note that each training plan is tailored for each individual person, it's not a generic one-size fits all plan. The plan adapts according to the progress being made.

How it works...

a) You'll have to answer questions initially so that a suitable programme can drawn up. This will be based on your current training and experience and how much time you have available. It's a plan designed to suit your life and work schedule as opposed to the other way around.

b) Every week, you'll be sent a weekly plan to follow.

c) You'll also have to provide feedback every weekend and the following weeks plan will be based on this.


d) You really do have to follow the plan. There is no point dipping in and out of the plan or be off doing something else every weekend when you're supposed to be doing a long run. The plan can be adapted to accommodate the occasional race but they must be occasional.
