5km run training plan – This training plan can be used by anyone and will easily prepare a beginner to bounce victoriously over a 5km finishing line in just 10 weeks.

10km run training plan – If you’re one of the thousands of women who took part in a 5km Race for Life  and you’re looking for your next big goal, a 10km could be the perfect step. Follow our 8 week plan.

Half marathon training plan – The half marathon is a perfect distance for any new runner. It’s long enough to provide a really challenging goal, but not as time consuming and debilitating as the full marathon of 26.2 miles. Follow our 12 week plan.

Sprint triathlon training plan – This 8 week training plan is aimed at a fit first timer. A sprint tri is normally a 500m swim, 24km bike and 5km run and is a perfect starting point for your first event, likely to take in the region of 1.5 hours.

How to be a better swimmer – This six week training plan is designed for improver swimmers who are ready to take their training to the next level.
