Imeh and I have experience crafting several HS Leaders and also working with athletes competing at a national and international level. We created this to allow more athletes to have access to quality training and to remove a lot of guesswork from the equation when it comes to how to train, how much to train, how to prepare for a race, etc.
This plan is for any NICA Varsity athlete looking to make the best of their season with workouts tailored to the races and to the individual athlete. This is also a useful tool for NICA coaches to have everyone follow a structured plan and to know you don't have to do research to coach the athletes and create workouts for each of them.
This plan makes it as easy as looking at the calendar and completing the workout. No guesswork, no doubts. You know you will be working effectively to increase your fitness through targeted, precise workouts and also recovering enough for peak race-day performance.
This specific block focuses on tailoring your engine to get ready for race season. This sets the stage for a strong season as you transition out of Threshold work to race-like intensity. This block's set up to carry you through an entire season of tough racing and breakthrough performances. The plan ramps up in volume and gets you ready to crush whatever goal you have for XC racing.
HAVING A HEART RATE MONITOR WOULD HELP; HOWEVER, IT IS NOT NECESSARY. You can absolutely complete the plan working by perceived exertion.
