Training plans

Are you overwhelmed by the choice of training plans out there? Do you struggle to find one that works for you, or might be suitable now that you are moving through menopause? It’s not widely known that many of the most used principles behind training plans were researched and developed for young men, so it’s not surprising that many of you will find that they simply don’t work. There’s just not enough attention given to aspects such as your recovery, the need to do strength work, and the types of runs that best suit your body. I can offer some more menopause-friendly alternatives, written and successfully tried out with a wide range of menopausal runners, including myself. The options are:

Bespoke training plan

This is for you if:

  • you want a training plan that is written specifically for you, your ability, your experience, your needs, and the event (if any) you are training for
  • you want a training plan that is tailored towards a non-standard distance event

Plans are normally written in blocks of 12, 15, 18 and 21 weeks, and include:

  • an initial coaching call to discuss your running, needs and goals
  • access to the Premium Athlete edition of Training Peaks

If you wish to purchase a bespoke training plan for a length other than those listed, please get in touch to discuss.

Once you have purchased a bespoke plan, I will be in touch to arrange your initial coaching call.

Menopause-friendly training plan

This is for you if:

  • you want a training plan that is tailored towards the needs of menopausal women, and that you can adapt to suit your personal circumstances
  • you want a training plan that is tailored towards a standard length of event (for example 10K, half marathon, marathon etc)

You can see a summary of available plans, and purchase them, via my coach page on Training Peaks.
