Fdip26: Programs and Plans

In this episode I talk about the basics of most training programs, and discuss items such as the maximum weekly distance you should run each week, the number of weeks you should train, and the length of your longest “long run‿.

You need to determine the best training schedule for yourself that will help you meet and surpass your own goals.  For some of you, just finishing a race of any distance will be a satisfying achievement.
