One question I get asked frequently is around creating training plans and modifying them, especially if you’re bridging the gap between distances. Creating training plans is something I do often for my coaching clients, customizing them based on race schedules or odd distances, and I’m going to spill all my secrets today on how I help them get it just right.
Trying to come up with the perfect plan that includes not only your short and long runs, but rest and other types of training can be confusing, so I’m laying out all the key pieces to create your own custom training plan. From my basic guidelines for a plan to how you need to prioritize your training, I’m sharing it all right here.

Whether you’re in the middle of training for a new distance, or you’re unsure of how to time your training for a race in the near future, or anything in between, this guideline I’m sharing with you today is going to ensure you create the perfect plan for you.
