The Making of the Run SMART Training Plans

By Vince Sherry

A couple of years ago I was looking through a schedule that Jack had sent me to prepare for the Carlsbad 5k.  The schedule was similar in format to what you would find in his book, Daniels’ Running Formula, but very different in terms of content.  While I was looking at the schedule I wondered if most runners knew how many different schedules Jack had written over the years.  At the time almost every competitive runner in Flagstaff (along with countless visiting athletes) had received a schedule from Jack for one race or another and no two were the same.

Top 10 Reasons To Purchase A Run SMART Training Plan

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?
