About our Training Plans

All of our training plans are delivered through TrainingPeaks. This software allows us to not only deliver you an amazing product, it allows you to better understand how your training is stacking up and where you’re headed. TrainingPeaks is different from a paper plan in that you have the plan with your wherever you go and allows you to keep comments in your training log so you can track your runs, and make important notes for better future performances.

Why Training Plans?

Training plans are a great cost effective option to 1:1 Coaching. If you’ve been an endurance athlete for any length of time – you’ve used a training plan. They are a great way to get through your first major distance race, and understand the basics of training. We like to take our plans a step further and set our plans apart. We know that workouts can be confusing so we’ve written out very thorough instructions for you. You can even send the workouts to your watch (Garmin, Suunto compatible) so you’ll never get off pace.  We also integrate strength training into all of our running based plans (can be added to any plan – let us know!). We believe that strength training is crucial to the success and longevity of athletes so we include it in our plans.
