Time to spice up your running training

So you've run your first 5k, 10k or half marathon. You got round, you finished, great, well done! You are now amongst an amazingly small proportion of the population that can actually run.

Where to now?

Do you want to improve? Maybe you want to better your time, discover what you are capable of?
Yes? Great; it's time to add a little spice to your training.

Our Spice training plans are one step on from the beginners; they contain a little more than the basic ingredients.

They'll get you moving at different speeds by introducing some speed training. They'll build your endurance, improve your VO2max, help lift your aerobic threshold and set you on your way to running faster times.
