When you sign up, the JSET algorithm takes data from you recent runs and quantifies your fitness. Then, by knowing the fitness needed to achieve your race goal, it sets out a training plan to improve your fitness so you can reach your race goal. Coupled with coaching and extra analysis from Josh Sambrook, an elite marathon runner, JSET has helped athletes across the globe, of a wide variety of abilities and backgrounds achieve their running goals. From runners who simply want to finish their first marathon to runners aiming to win races, JSET works for everyone.
By signing up for an online marathon training plan with JSET, you will receive a training plan this is personalised according to your goals, past performances, current ability, lifestyle and training preferences. This gives your training a high degree of specificity, so you will not feel like you're following a generic plan.
A JSET marathon training plan can change the way you train. Each week you have a target training 'ring'. Which is simply the training load you need to run in order to achieve your race goal. Each mile you run moves you towards this target, and running faster counts as more of your training load.
It’s up to you to decide how you train. Some people run big distances every day, at a consistent, slow place. But if you’d rather run a coached session with a club that’s fine too – just make sure you run enough each week to meet the training load target. It is this highly individual training that has helped runners of all abilities improve.
If you stick to the JSET training program you can be confident you’ll be fit enough to achieve your race goal. You've got the experience of me, an elite marathon runner, but it's the science behind the unique training program that's the really special thing about JSET.
Runners of all abilities, from across the world, have used JSET to break PBs and redefine how they train.
It was training correctly, in a way that I enjoy, that enabled me to really improve. The JSET training uses the structure of science, combined with the intelligence of a skilled human to generate a training program that allows athletes to achieve more than they thought possible. JSET is different because the science underpinning the program understands exactly what training load your body has experienced, and what race performance that will produce.
And finally, some background about me; I am a graduate of the University of Leeds, with a BSc in Sports Science & Physiology. For my final year project (dissertation) I investigated predicting marathon performance from training variables and previous race performance; this is the work that I now use as the foundation of JSET. I ran my first marathon at the age of 17, and I've run at least one every year since. My current PB is 2h28min, which I ran in the Yorkshire Marathon 2018.
