Train to run faster and set a new personal record in just four weeks!

The only coached-audio runner’s speed training you’ll ever need to set a new PR!

The Running Mate Fastest 5K program is a specially designed, 4 week training schedule for runner’s who are looking to increase their average running speed and drop their race pace significantly with the goal of setting a new personal record (PR) in their next road race.  Similar to 5K101 and each of the other Running Mate programs, Coach Todd will put you through numerous invigorating fartlek-style speed drill workouts that will challenge you…but more importantly, will quickly help you build strength like you’ve never known before.  It won’t be easy of course, no goal worth reaching ever is, but you can absolutely do this if you stay focused and push yourself.

There are multiple workouts included in this program, four weeks worth in fact.  If you were to hire a personal coach or running trainer you would easily spend hundreds of dollars for the same high quality coaching that you’ll receive with the Fastest 5K audio program. This way you can spend a small fraction of the cost and better yet, you can workout on your own time instead of someone elses!   Each workout is verbally coached by Todd Lange and produced in MP3 format so all you have to do is download the tracks to your favorite MP3 player, press play, and hit the road.  Todd will coach you every step of the way and let you know how fast to run and for how long.  Each track is also set to an outstanding selection of high energy music to keep your heart pumping and feet pounding.

As anyone who has completed this program will tell you, it’s only four weeks, and they’ve seen some truly amazing results.  We’ve had hundreds of beginning runners take this challenge immediately after graduating from the 5K101 Couch to 5K program who have dropped their race times by 30 seconds to 13 minutes in the 5K!!

Take the challenge now…you’ve got nothing to lose but time!

A couple of important points worth mentioning:

1. If you bomb a workout, and we all do, don’t let that get you down.  If you just can’t find the energy to run at all, then call it a rest day and get back out there tomorrow once you’ve had a good nights rest.

2. If you have the energy to run, but for whatever reason, you just can’t seem to push through the interval assignments, then by all means scrap the intervals and just go for a fun run.  Run for as long as you can at a comfortable pace and then try the assigned workout again tomorrow or after your next rest day.

3. If at any point you experience any acute or lasting pain in a specific area of your body, please seek medical attention. DO NOT attempt to push through serious pain. You will only further injure yourself and the end result will be a mandatory sabbatical from running for weeks, if not months. It’s just not worth it, so take your health seriously.

Downloading Instructions:

Once you have completed your purchase, open the ZIP folder and download the contents to your hard drive.  Each audio file is in typical MP3 format.  We recommend you create a new folder on your computer labeled Fastest 5K, then save these MP3 audio files into that folder.

Next, create a new Fastest 5K playlist on your MP3 player & copy/paste or click/drag the Fastest 5K audio files from that folder you just created into your new Fastest 5K playlist.

The next time you sync your MP3 player with your computer, your new playlist should appear and each of the workout tracks should be listed inside.
