HOW IT WORKS​

First and foremost, ALL runners are welcome. Whether you're just coming off the couch or working towards an advanced marathon training plan, Tailored Strides is for you! Tailored Strides has a very simple approach to help you achieve your goals. Our plans foster success by focusing on three critical aspects of improving: accountability, consistency, and health. You will submit a desire to join in the ‘Sign Me Up!’ section, indicating which plan you want to sign up for. We will then reply back with a basic questionnaire. You'll submit the questionnaire which will establish your baseline fitness, goals and/or upcoming race(s). Once your baseline fitness has been established, you'll create a profile on Strava, a social media app for athletes. We can remotely monitor your progress through Strava as well as provide encouragement along the way. Each plan provides:

  • Tailored to your current fitness level

    • No guessing as to which plan 'fits'​

  • Transparency -- laid out upfront

  • Accountability through Strava

  • Consistency with plan and goal in writing

  • proven approach -- methodical mileage building (health conscious)

    • Roughly 10% mileage volume increase each week​

  • No commitment to lengthy contracts

  • Three different plan duration options

  • Unlimited correspondence via text/email

    ​​

The plans are framed around four types of intensities for simplicity. All runs will be completed at one of these four intensities: Recovery, Easy, Tempo, and Repeats. Recovery and Easy runs will account for roughly 60% of your weekly volume; Tempo or Repeats will account for roughly 10% of your weekly volume; and lastly, the Long Run will account for roughly 30% of your weekly volume.
