What comes first?

The running, the training, the planning, or the achievement?

It could be any one of those, but without planning, your training and your running could take you anywhere.

A plan will give you focus, motivation, and a very definite goal.

It's not just about the planning because even before you plan, you need to know where you are now, and then where you want to be. This can be as simple as changing from a non-runner or complete beginner to someone who can run a 5k or maybe a marathon.
Or maybe, you've done that, you want to get better, you want to improve, run a faster 10k, or run a half marathon without slowing down in the final 3 miles.
Here at Running Training Plan we aim to help you define what you want from your running, and then help you get there.

It's about running in the real world, your own real world — because everyone is different.

If you have personalised training and access to the best running advice, you will run better, faster, longer, more healthily and — perhaps most important of all — more enjoyably.
