Thursday Training Plan: 30 Week Abel Tasman Coastal Classic Trail Run Training Plan

Stride into paradise with the Abel Tasman Coastal Classic. Now into it’s 25th year this is truly an iconic beauty and a must run event. Entries open today and this training plan commences on Monday, that will see you getting to the start line fit and healthy and ready to have a great event.

Designed for Intermediate Runners who is looking to complete the Abel Tasman Coastal Classic, the primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to Finish YOUR event COMFORTABLY.

Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full Marathon distance events and my success coaching hundreds of runners.

Starting 30 weeks before the Abel Tasman Coastal Classic (on 19 March 2018), this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week includes 3 or 4 runs and a stretching session. There are two Training Plans depending on how frequently you run. Although not necessary, I recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with a GPS watch (such as a Garmin).

Prior to using this plan, you should be able to run comfortably for 90 minutes.

Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing related questions.
