Training Philosophy:
-----------------------------------------

Virtual Run Coachs training philosophy is a hybrid of Pfitzinger (higher mid week mileage, 3 large cycles) and Jack Daniels (speed work throughout, build up throughout entire plan). The app selects exactly what is right for you based on the difficulty level. The harder the difficulty level, the more speedwork will be incorporated and the higher the mileage will ultimately go.
