Full Speed Training Plans

Training plans for real people

Get started on a path to your next goal by downloading a tested and proven Full Speed training plan.  From Distances for 5K to Marathons and beyond each plan has a beginner and advanced version depending on you experience and goals.

Each plan below is written intentionally to be achievable by anyone regardless of how fast you run or what your goals are.  I understand that most runners do not do so professionally and therefore have to balance training with work, family, friends, and everything else that comes up over the course of a normal training cycle.  

While writing these plans I start with my 15+ years of experience running these various distances across different phases of my life from college to working a 50+ hour a week job, to adding a family on top of that.  I then layered on top of that the latest coaching and running science that makes up the Full Speed Method to ensure that maximum benefit with the minimum required input.  If you want to read more about the theory and methodology behind the Full Speed Method check out this blog post.  

If you have any questions about the plans listed below or need help customizing any of them, feel free to reach out at

Beginner Plans

Beginner plans are great for any one just starting out as a runner, looking to run a certain distance for the first time or for someone not as focused on their time as they are just finishing injury free.

Full Speed Advanced Plans

Advanced plans are targeted at experienced runners who have run their chosen distance before and are now looking to improve upon past performance.  These plans ramp up total milage, running days, and add various types of speed and running strength workouts.
