Its not Rocket Science 


Its Running Science

Eliminate junk running from your programme. 


Most runners are using outdated information and are suffering the consequences.

79% of runners end up injured. Running 65 km (40 miles) per week is associated with higher injury rates (REF).


It’s not rocket science, it’s running science. 


Hitting new personal bests and achieving your running goals takes more than commitment. 

My training plans are based on the physiology of endurance.

I do not care about weekly mileage...

Why I do not care about weekly mileage.

Weekly mileage is the silent killer of runners. When you measure yourself against a weekly mileage target, you’re neglecting to account for your true training load. In fact, the pace of your weekly tempo run was a better predictor of running performance than weekly mileage (REF). Who cares if you can run 100 km or 60 miles per week if you’re too tired to run your tempo run!

Unlock your physiology with training zones.


My training plans are built from the science of the human body. Your lactate (anaerobic) threshold is specific to you. All of my training plans include a threshold test that can be utilised to set training zones that ensure you are always training effectively. 

I did the research so you don’t have to.


It is my job to enhance human performance. I spent over a 3rd of my life learning how to enhance an individual’s physical capabilities. That’s thousands of hours in the lab, in the library, and in the field. I’ve found what works best, and I’ve put it into practice within these training plans.

What is the Free All-Purpose Training Week?

As the name suggests, this is a free, all distance encompassing, customisable, easy to use, bullet proof Training Plan.

Science is Simple


E = mc2 

Albert Einstein was able to describe the science of matter with a three component equation. Your training plan can incorporate the latest in human physiology without being complicated. Crazy complex sessions and algorithmic level descriptions aren’t necessary. Consistent training leads to consistent improvements through the generation of new mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell. Your mitochondria are your aerobic engine. Simple is effective.
