Train Fast 2 Be Fast
Training Plans for Home School Distance Runners
Come as Your Are...
From the physical fitness student trying to improve their health to the athlete training to win a championship... every person has a place in their life for a running program. But... where to begin? What should the student do each day? What should the student eat? How much should they sleep? How should they take care of their body to stay healthy?
GAPro's Train Fast 2 Be Fast (TF2BF) program provides easy to follow training plans that incorporate the best sports science to improve every student's physical fitness and ability to make healthful lifestyle choices.
Come as you are. Find the system that is best for your current abilities and start working to grow. It doesn't matter where you begin, it matters that you begin. The time to achieve your potential is now.
STEP 1: Choose Your Current Level
There are three levels that can accommodate every runner. It is important to be realistic and underestimate where your ability is currently. If a student trains at a level that is too intense, it will lead to injury. Make sure to consult with a doctor to make sure you are healthy to participate in physical activity:
Level 1: Just Starting. This level is for the student just getting started who has never run before or has not run in a very long time, but are interested in starting again. These students could be running for fitness goals, to get in shape for a sport, or to eventually become a competitive racer.
Level 2: Getting Serious. This level is for the student who runs occasionally or just does regular "easy runs" that wants a plan that will challenge them and take them "to the next level." This is also a great level for students looking to get ready for the military basic training.
Level 3: Competitive Racers. This level is for the student who already races and wants to improve to become more competitive. They already have a base of training and want to improve to achieve certain athletic goals (running personal bests, compete to win races, qualify for States/Nationals, get recognized by colleges, etc).
STEP 2: Select Racing Distance
The training must match the final goal. The person who is training for better fitness needs different workouts then the 800m runner, or the 5k runner. Select the purpose that best matches your goal.
STEP 3: Select Your Current Time/Ability
Training must begin with your current level of conditioning. The TF2BF system is based off of your current mile time. If you do not know your current best-mile time, get a running app (ex: RunKeeper, Strava, Nike Run Club) or get a stop watch and go to the local track and run a mile for time.
STEP 4: Get Started, Be Awesome
The mile that matters is the mile you run. Once you have purchased your training plan, go ahead and get running.
