FAQ

From beginners who are relatively new to running or who want to prepare for shorter distances with a relatively small amount of training to advanced athletes and ambitious runners who want to achieve a top ranking. Using the filter function and the descriptions, you will find exactly the right plan that fits your level.

The training plan templates are each divided into 8-week blocks that build on each other. From basic training, to build-up training, to the final race preparation, you run through a complete season up to your planned competition. Of course, it is also possible to join in between and skip individual phases. Always orientate yourself backwards from your target competition with which phase you should start. After you have loaded the plan into the AZUM training platform, you can delete or move individual weeks.
