About This Training Plan
This NINE MONTH TRAINING PLAN is designed for runners who want to take on every race on RunDisney’s Circuit! That’s 13 Races between November 2022 and April 2023: Wine and Dine 5k and Two-Course Challenge, The Dopey Challenge, Princess 5k and Fairytale Challenge, and Springtime Surprise Challenge.
Pre-requisites: At the start of this plan, you MUST be able to run or run/walk for at least 60 minutes, and have averaged 15 miles per week for the last 6 months. It is also strongly recommended that you have completed a standalone 26.2 mile marathon at least once, AND have completed a half-marathon distance in the last 18 months.
Tracking Device: ie Garmin, Polar, Suunto, etc. that can track miles, time, and heart rate.
Foam Roller or other recovery device.
Resistance Bands for post-run strength.
A full season of training is about time on your feet rather than speed. The long, slow miles are the key to this plan, which means you are best served by not thinking about running for time, but rather about effort. You will see a lot of easy running throughout this plan.
What is included:
9 Months of training to build up for 4 runDisney events, including recovery after each event.
Monthly Newsletter containing news and updates as RunDisney releases its schedule.
Email Access to Coach Heather for questions.
Exclusive Videos for participants to include training tips, workout breakdowns, Runner’s Strength Sessions, RunDisney event tips, and much more.
Access to the Invitation-only Facebook Group
