Constant and Never Ending Improvement

The Goal

Run The North Face 100km in Thailand, February 2020.

Training Update

The real training starts 05 July 2019.

Following a set plan of two short runs between 5 and 8kms. And one long run, starting 11kms then building up to 70kms, per week.

The plan is to run long every second weekend, with some cross training and the two short runs. Example of week one below.


  1. The training plan was set out by modifying existing plans available online. I had to change the plan to suit my employment and travel arrangements.
  2. I’m prepared to alter the plan if something is not working.
  3. I am not prepared to alter the goal of running 100 kms in January 2020.
