Stafford Half Training Plan

 

With the popular local race coming in March I thought it would be a good idea to produce a training plan for our Improvers. Please find it below, free to download, personalise and use it.

 

As with all general plans it is necessary for you to personalise it to your abilities. Talk to your coach or session leader for advise.

 

If during the course you start suffering from aches and pains then slow down, repeat the previous week, give your body time to recover. It is better not to complete the plan if you have problems, steady improvements may suite you better.
