I have run a few marathons using conventional training plans and being relatively successful for a sub 4 hr runner over the years. I then came across JSET and Josh’s uniquely tailored approach to training. This appealed to me as I’d just started low HR training, which suited my new approach to running.
JSET provides you with a brilliant platform to visually see how you’re doing each week. At the start of each week, your weekly mileage is clearly shown at current pace. If your pace increases the mileage comes down slightly and the opposite if you slow down.
What’s appealing is that the wheel fills up as you run, so you can see exactly how well you are progressing, day to day. Once your week is complete, the wheel is full and you can put your feet up with a well earned rest and a pat on the back. The visual system is combined with Josh’s wealth of knowledge and feedback, giving you a personalised program to achieve you goals.
Josh will give you encouragement and advice along the way, so that each week is different and he can provide insight into what is going well and not so well, by looking at your graphs projected by the system.
I did a 20 week marathon program and although unfortunately was unable to run the Spring marathon 2020 due the lockdown, I know that I am the fittest I have ever been. I ran the Cambridge Half Marathon equalling my PB which was run when I was 17 – 26 yrs go! I’m hoping to run another marathon again next year and will definitely use JSET.
I really could not believe how running slowly could be enjoyable and turn you into such a machine. In training I was doing 90 mile weeks without any problem whatsoever. Then when you wish to run fast, there is this incredible fitness under you that you don’t even realise!
I would highly recommend JSET, the most valuable and focused marathon training that I have ever done.
