Why choose Fernando Braz's Going the Distance program?
- Because you're serious about your running.
- You want to improve and run faster.
- You want fewer running injuries.
- You want advice on race strategy -- which ones should I do, what pace is right for me.
You ask yourself these questions --
- How exactly can I improve my running?
How can I use running to become more fit?
- Can I get ready to run a marathon in only 12 months? What should my target finishing time be? How will I know if my training is "on schedule" to meet my goal?
- How long should my long runs be? How often? What pace will help me rather than discourage me or be too easy?
- What about hill workouts? What are they? Will they help me? How long? How many repeats? How fast? How exactly should I run them?
- What are tempo runs? If I'm not training for the Olympics, should I bother with them? How hard should they be? What pace? How often?
- And track workouts. I'm not a sprinter, so why should I run around a track? Will that really help my running? Will I race faster?
- And how does all this fit into my "busy" week? How many days should I run? How many miles? What about recovery? How can I train hard and not be tired all the time?
- How can I know when I'm not training hard enough and therefore not racing my best, and how can I know when I'm training too much and therefore I'm too tired to race my best?
If you ask yourself any of these questions, then the Going the Distance training program is for you.
