10.) Accommodates Racing Schedule Along the Way
No more guessing what to do in the days prior to races you run leading up to your goal race, or how to adjust for a workout that should have been completed on race day. Run SMART Training Plans, unlike any other option on the market today, adjust for races in the weeks prior to your goal race.
9.) Adjusts for Fitness Improvements Throughout Your Training
Generic plans don’t account for fitness improvements. Run SMART Training Plans anticipate natural body changes when a client is training. As their fitness improves along the way, the quality sessions week to week change to help the client continue to move forward and get faster. How can you improve if your schedule doesn’t anticipate you improving?
8.) Lists Proper Paces For Every Run
No more guessing how hard or easy to run on a specific day. Run SMART Training Plans include specific pacing instructions for every workout based on your past results and future goals.
7.) Explains the Benefits of Each Workout
The purpose of each type of workout is listed on the training plan, so you understand the benefits of every workout and why you’re doing them.
6.) Customizable to Fit Your Personal Schedule
Run SMART Training Plans allow you to choose which day of the week you’d like to do your long run and hardest workout. It also allows you to decide how many days a week you can train and what days you prefer to have off. This allows clients an opportunity to follow a personalized plan that fits conveniently into their personal schedule.
5.) Email Support by Certified Run SMART Coach
What happens when you’re following a generic plan and you get sick or miss a few workouts because of work or family commitments? There’s no guidance as to how you should adjust your schedule. Run SMART Training Plans are each created by a certified Run SMART coach who offers email support along the way if you have questions. Run SMART’s coaching staff is made up of some of the best distance runners in the country including sub-4 minute milers, Olympic Trials qualifiers and national champions.
4.) Highly Personalized Training
Generic training plans are generally broken down into three categories: beginner, intermediate and advanced, but every runner is different and has different running profiles and needs. Run SMART Training Plans are more effective because they provide quality personalized coaching that factors in the client’s running background, current fitness, goals/objectives and lifestyle. They also adjust for the amount of time your schedule permits for training.
3.) Affordable/Fair Rate
At $65 per training plan that’s as little as $3.60 per week, or for some people, a gallon of gas, or a cup of fancy coffee. If you’re spending 18 weeks or on average 100 hours of your life dedicated to preparing for a marathon, why not do it right and get a personalized plan? Isn’t your health and well being worth $3 a week?
2.) Based on Hand-written Schedules of the “World’s Greatest Coach”
Run SMART Training Plans are based on actual hand-written schedules of legendary coach, Dr. Jack Daniels, named “World’s Greatest Coach” by Runner’s World. Run SMART Training Plans offer every runner the opportunity to train using schedules written by one of the greatest coaches ever that are tailored to their running profile.
1.) Health and safety
Generic plans simply put you into three categories: beginner, intermediate or advanced. They don’t factor in your past running history, current fitness, goals or lifestyle so how can they provide you a safe and effective plan? The number one reason to purchase a Run SMART Training Plan is your health and safety. We get clients all the time that sign up for coaching who come to us injured after following a generic plan. Running injuries are very common but to follow a schedule that was created without knowing anything about you puts your health at greater risk.
