Build Your Own Training Plan: $149
Why is this a good idea?
You have 4 choices…
Train yourself and hope for the best using the “willy-nilly” approach. RESULTS: Cheapest option, not effective, and high risk of injury
Buy any online “cookie-cutter” training plan and hope for the best. RESULTS: Inexpensive but usually ineffective
Hire a coach, and if he’s good you’ll probably do well. RESULTS: Expensive and rigid, sometimes awkward
Use RunnersHigh to help you “Build-Your-Own” training plan. RESULTS: Inexpensive, flexible, very effective and completely recyclable
How does the “Build Your Own Training Plan” work?
Together we collaborate, one-on-one, on an effective strategy to safely reach your goals. Using our step-by-step system you will be guided through the process of creating a personalized 6-month training plan that follows proven strategies and principles.
“Online cookie-cutter training plans are not effective, unless you’re a robot” - Coach Jim
How’s it work? We meet-up on Skype or Facetime (or in person if you're local) for about 2 hours to review your running history, short and long term goals, and lifestyle variables. Using our proprietary RunnersHigh Training Plan checklist, we write out your plan based on microcycles, mesocycles and macrocycles (short, intermediate and long term periods), then insert your personal schedule, preferences, and lifestyle limitations. We build each phase using proven methods for building base, strength, stamina, speed, race prep, and recovery with emphasis on your personal needs. Every run will have a purpose so you’ll know; What, Why, and exactly HOW to do each run. In final review we ensure your mileage volume, tempo paces, race paces, long runs, speed work and recovery are in total balance and appropriate for your goals. When we’re done, you’ll have a personalized training blueprint that makes sense for you! Best of all, since you OWN your plan you can recycle it over and over!
This option comes with 6-months full access to your coach to monitor and guide your progress. You simply follow your custom training plan and get the help when you need it.
Whether just getting started or training to qualify for Boston Marathon, a custom training plan is essential!
Are you ready to get serious?
To get started; click HERE and fill out your "RUNNER PROFILE" questionnaire. As you fill in your profile, you’ll immediately see how this info is used to develop a custom training plan specifically for you. There are many essential ingredients that go into a training plan and it takes some serious work to do it right, so it's important for you to provide as much detail as you can about your history and your goals.
When you finish your RUNNER PROFILE just click through the next step and select a payment option. That will immediately send us a notification that you are ready to schedule a time to build your training plan. You will then hear from us right away to set-up your “Build Your Own Training Plan” session. After our meet-up you’ll be on your way with a personalized training plan built just for you!

It gets even better
If you’re using the fitness app Strava I can follow your progress (yes, it’s free and optional). Just join my group RunnersHighDOTcom so that every time you finish a workout I can view the details of your run. Yup, I'm right there to monitor every run you make. You might even receive a comment, email or text to offer advice or suggestions. It's like having me standing right there at the side of the track cheering you as you run by.

What else is included?
How hard can it be to develop a training plan? I'm glad you asked...
As you know, training right and becoming a better runner is a very complex journey. For example, a well written plan will have base, strength, stamina, speed, race, and recovery phases. These are planned around cutback weeks and follow the stepped progression of “IIP” (Introduce, Improve, Perfect principle) using a careful balance of aerobic effort, anaerobic, lactic threshold, and V02 Max running. The frequency, intensity and duration of every run has to match your specific goals and current abilities…and allow for your personal preferences and lifestyle variables. Add to all that some form development drills, speed work sessions, stamina, race and fueling strategies, and you can see why you need a coach to fit those pieces of the puzzle together. There’s more, but you get the idea.
