Learn How To Build Your Own

How cool would it be to know how to build your own training plans whenever you needed one?

Cool, right?  That's why I created this workshop series:

April 24th-25th, 2021


Training Plan Workshop

Remote Workshop Series

This is not something you buy and "hopefully get around to watching later." Each 3 hour session is a LIVE event, jammed-packed with actionable content to help you build your own training programs.

No more searching the Internet for your next training plan!  

Build your own training plans for running

Live and Interactive

Not a passive webinar, and not another Zoom meeting. This is an immersive training experience.

At the end of each training section, you will put the concepts into practice and build your own training program. You will walk away with a 100% customized training plan!

Hi, Steve here...

Over the last decade, I have built nearly a thousand+ training plans through my PaceBuilders training program, my local sports performance coaching business, and my running club.

While I would love to coach you personally, I know this isn't realistic. Not everyone is interested in coaching. But you deserve more than the generic, freebie plans that may or may not fit your experience level. These plans often progress you too fast risking injury, or they often hold you back from obtaining your true potential. Free training plans are the lowest common denominator of training. Some work. Some don't. So stop guessing...I created this training to help you build your own training plans. 

After you attend this training you will be able to write and modify your own training plans for any distance up to a marathon. Even if you are a brand new runner!

Here is what you can expect

Training Plans for 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon

You will be able to create training plans for ANY race distance from 5k up to the marathon distance

You'll learn:

  • How to evaluate your current fitness level and build plans that are appropriate for your experience level (beginner and experienced).
  • How to apply the latest in sports science to build a safe training schedule that properly balances workouts with recovery. 
  • How to break up your training into phases so you can meet your training goals. 
  • How to apply a variety of workouts so you can build endurance safely, train for speed, achieve proper recovery and build strength, and stamina. 
  • How to modify your training plan when life happens. You will learn how to modify your plan to get back on track if you get sick, injured, decide to run a pop-up race, or fall off track.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a beginner. Will this training be beginner-friendly or support run/walk?

Yes. This training is perfect for everyone except the most advanced runner. I will show you how to create the right workouts and training based on your experience level whether that be run-walk, or strictly running or a combination of both.

Is this a run coaching certification course?

No. This workshop series is not designed to train you to become a running coach. Training for running coaches goes into a lot more depth to cover other topic areas beyond writing training plans. This workshop series is designed to help you structure and design your own training plan based on scientifically-proven training principles based on the latest in sports science. If you desire a formal training certification, I highly recommend checking out the RRCA coaching program.

Can I write training plans for others?

While you will learn how to create training plans, I highly discourage you writing plans for others. Writing plans for yourself is one thing. You know your body and what works for you. You know your own training history.

Writing training plans for others, requires additional training that is outside the scope of this training. Coaching others requires a lot more than just writing a training plan.


These dates/times don't work for me. Can I still sign up to have access to the recordings?

Yes. If you can't attend live, all recordings and assets will be made available within 24 hours of each LIVE session.

Will you be covering specific workout instructions for building speed, endurance or race-specific training?

Yes. I will cover each workout type, its purpose, and where in your training schedule it is best applied.

What will I need to attend training?

I use Zoom to conduct training. You will need a laptop/desktop computer with good Internet connection. You will also need headphones and microphone so you can ask questions. A built in web camera is encouraged as well.

What kind of support do I receive during and after training?

Each session is interactive, so you will be able to ask questions during each workshop session. I also offer 90 days of post-workshop support by email/Zoom to answer any question you have, or review any training plans you create that you would like my feedback on. 

What happens if I sign up now, and later realize that I can't attend?

You can cancel up to 48 hours before the start of class with a full refund. Obviously, the sooner I know, the better so I can fill the open seat. Cancellations within 48 hours will receive a 50% refund. Cancellations within 24 hours will not receive a refund as I will be unable to fill your spot. 

Also, all sessions are recorded, so even if you can't attend, you can receive the training, and you still get 90 days of personal support as you build your plan.

Will you include strength training and cross-training into your plan development?

Yes. Strength training and cross training is an important part of your overall development.

We will cover when, where, and how to apply strength training to your plan. We even give you access to sample strength plans AND a library of dozens of strength training videos.

I am already a running coach. Is this training helpful for me? 

Maybe. If you need a refresher or want to learn how I apply workouts to various situations feel free to attend. 

Why are you teaching people to write their own plans instead of hiring you as a running coach?

Great question. I struggled with this question myself and I worried for years whether this type of training would dilute my ability to get more coaching clients. Plus, I am slowly transitioning out of 1:1 coaching to free up more time for my family and run my local sports performance company. 

Over the past 10 years of coaching, I also realized that not everyone wants a running coach or can afford to work with one. In fact, less than one percent will instead relying on free plans, YouTube or books.   

This training is designed to pull the best parts of coaching and train you so you can apply an effective level of structure to your training. I still encourage runners to work with running coaches when they can. However, this training is not only the next best thing. It is far superior than free plans, YouTube videos or just winging it on your own.  You will know exactly what to do when you complete this training.
