If you’ve read Strength Running for awhile, you know I’m all about staying healthy so you can get faster. If you’re looking for a new marathon PR or just want more consistent running, the PR Race Plan is your guide to injury-free running.
I’m Jason Fitzgerald, a USATF (USA Track & Field) Level 1 Certified Coach and the author of the Top Amazon seller 101 Simple Ways to be a Better Runner.
I’ve helped thousands of runners run more consistently and break their Personal Records – without the injuries. But not everyone is running well right now.
Are you confused by training or constantly injured?
I hear from a lot of people who are unsure of what to do next or dealing with frequent injuries. Does this sound like you?
“The thing I need help most with is balancing the necessary strength training and running. Long distances are not my strong suit.”
“I want to be successful, injury free and able to tell amazing stories of a stay-at-home mom and her victory of overcoming the everyday to become extraordinary.”
“I’m scared. What if I fail? What if I don’t see changes? What if I don’t get better and let everyone down?”
“My biggest struggle is direction. I don’t know where or what to do next since completing my 2nd 5k. I have big thoughts and dreams but am prone to injury, so I tend to stop at any little sign of discomfort.”
Unfortunately a LOT of runners are going through similar struggles.
Ask yourself: what could I accomplish if I had a plan just for me? How much better would I feel if my training was all laid out for me ahead of time (even which days to rest) so I’m not confused where to start?
You’d finally be able to accomplish your goals. That’s different for all of us – but maybe it’s to lose 15 pounds, feel more energetic playing with your kids, run a faster half-marathon, or finally run your first marathon.
But you’ve been held back by poor training, low motivation, and overuse injuries. I get emails every week about these barriers:
“I have a continual tendency to push just beyond the right amount of training, not allowing enough recovery or base time after big races…”
“I have a fear of injury with increased training…”
“I’ll have really good stretches of running for a month and feel great, then for no apparent reason I won’t run for a week or maybe even two. How can I fix this pattern?”
“I want to train harder and run faster but my injury is keeping me at a slower pace that I’d like.”
Do you see a barrier that’s familiar to you? Are you tired of wondering, “what if…?”
I could list runner’s problems for pages and pages. But I don’t want to – I’d rather talk about solutions.
Solutions that helped runners like Dave, Christina, and Mark:
“You’ve been amazing and the advice and schedules that you’ve provided have been invaluable — my mind still goes back to my chiropractor telling me that there’s no way that I should’ve healed so quickly — I dig that!” – Dave L.
“I absolutely love my training plan — I am currently ahead of schedule and completed my first 20 miler last night, injury-free! The injury prevention work has done miracles.” – Christina G.
“I would definitely recommend the PR Race Plan to others. My plan was designed for me, and was well aligned with what I asked for up front. And the result is a marathon PR by 16 minutes! This race was a huge confidence builder for me.” – Mark D.
“I ran my half marathon earlier today and got a PR of 1:45, placed first in my age group, had the fastest time in that age group for all the years the race has been run, and most impressively to me was that my last two miles were the fastest, at 7:35 and 7:36! I’m a very happy girl. Thank you for your plan. On to the next one!” – Martha K.
Everything you need to run fast and finally run consistently
The PR Race Plan is a personalized training plan designed to get you to the starting line feeling better than ever. It’s completely customized to your fitness level, injuries, background, goals and life schedule. It includes:
- A complete training plan from start to finish, so you don’t have to worry if you’re doing what you should be
- Full workouts and paces so you know exactly what to do (no more trying to figure it out by yourself)
- Focused recovery, injury prevention, and strength exercises (not just running workouts)
- Strength and mobility routines to help you stay healthy and prevent injuries
- Advice on how to train that’s personalized to you
No matter if you’re training for a 5k or a marathon, a PR Race Plan makes sure you’re doing the right workouts and the right mileage to help you reach your goals.
A PR Race Plan takes the confusion out of training. Don’t be frustrated by complex training plans. Leave the hard work to me!
You get a detailed training plan up to 20 weeks long (24 for some ultramarathon distances) to make you a faster, more athletic runner. Emil me if you don’t understand something – I make sure you completely understand everything.
And when a personalized training plan fits your needs, you get results like this:
“But Jason…I’m not fast enough for a custom training plan!”
A lot of runners think that personalized training plans are only for elite runners. They couldn’t be more wrong.
I’ve written run/walk plans for runners who can’t even finish a mile. Many of my plans are for runners preparing for their first race ever!
I’ve also written plans for ultramarathons, 1.5 mile military fitness tests, and 5k races. Some runners choose a PR Race Plan for base training while others just want more well-rounded training. Remember: this plan is customized for you.
Beginner runners benefit the most from a custom running plan because it details every run – from the warm-up, running workout, strength exercises, and even pacing guidance. I make sure you understand every single workout in the entire plan.
When I send you your personalized plan, I also include advice on beating soreness and your workout paces. You’ll know exactly how to reach your running goals.

What do runners like you think about the PR Race Plan?
“I was jumping from plan to plan trying to find something that worked for me. I purchased a PR plan which was better prices than anything I found online to date. I followed the plan and not only did my running improve but I also felt more confident on my legs. I was stronger and I looked stronger as well. Then came the real test. After following Jasons PR plan I ran my second marathon and blew my PR out of the water by 46 minutes! Thanks Jason, I couldn’t have done it without you.” – Ryan W.
“Jason, not sure what kind of mystical powers you have but I ran a 5k this morning and cut 40 seconds off my PR!” – Kris B.
“Looks like your plan is working for me: 1:06 10k PR in my first “B” race of the year in the snow :)” – Emily C., Denmark

Race Plan FAQ
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about my custom training plans, so let me answer the most common questions for you.
How long is my training plan?
Since the training plans that I create are all custom built from scratch, it depends! Most of the plans that I write are for 10-20 weeks and there’s no extra “surcharge” for writing longer training programs.
I purposefully limit the number of weeks in a training plan to 20 because I’ve found that any longer and runners tend to get injured, burned out, or simply tired of following a daily schedule of runs. However, some ultramarathon distances of 50-100 miles may require a plan of up to 24 weeks and I allow for this exception.
How long does it take to get my custom training program?
It takes about 5 business days for me to get to your plan, review your Runner Questionnaire, and write your program. Sometimes it’s a few days earlier or later so I appreciate your patience!
Do I need a gym membership for this training?
No! I can include strength, core, and dynamic flexibility exercises that require no gym equipment and can be done anywhere – like your living room or a cramped hotel room.
And if you do have a gym membership, I can include cross-training and strength exercises that you can’t do at home. Just let me know in your Runner Questionnaire.
I’m a total beginner. Will this be too advanced for me?
No way! Since these are personalized specifically to YOUR fitness level, injury history, and goals (among many other factors), the plan will be tailored to your unique needs.
I’ve worked with runners who have just started running and those who are on walk-run programs. No matter your level, I can make a training program work for you individually.
I’m just getting over an injury. Should I wait to get a plan or do it now?
If you’re healthy and can run without pain, the best time to get a training plan is right now. I can evaluate your injury and fitness level, and build a training plan that will help you achieve your running goals AND keeps you healthy long-term.
There’s a risky time during the return-to-running phase where you’re more likely to get injured. I can help you through this risky time period so you stay healthy.
My race plans come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. While no training plan is a silver bullet and I can’t guarantee you’ll run your fastest ever, I know you’ll love your custom plan.
If you don’t like your workout schedule, email me within 30 days and we’ll make it work for you. I want you to believe in your training.
Aren’t you tired of waiting to “figure it out” or thinking that you “just need to do more research?” That’s what I’m here for! Fill out my extensive Runner Questionnaire and I’ll tailor your training plan for you.
I’ve gotten stories from runners like you who have run beyond their expectations in races like 3.5 miles, the half-marathon, and marathons. Here’s just a small sampling…
“I got a PR Race Plan and then ran an awesome half-marathon. I went out faster than planned (5:50 pace) but then settled into a nice rhythm on the hills and flats by averaging 6:04 mile pace. I ended up winning the race and setting a course record in 1:19:20. Excellent confidence booster and makes me pretty happy about where my fitness is – thanks!” – Eric M.
“I purchased a PR plan from you over the summer for my half on October 23rd. Well I thought the plan was great, very detailed and easy to follow. It worked perfectly for me. I went into the race feeling much more comfortable with my ability and just ready to run at whatever speed my body told me to. I pr’d the race by 16 minutes from my first half 6 months prior!” – Sara R.
“Jason’s training plan was just what I needed – it helped me run a big PR in a longer race than I thought I was ready for [3.5 miles], all while feeling totally prepared. Without his plan, I don’t think I would have been able to run sub-6 pace the entire way. Thank you for pushing me to be my best!” – Eric S.
