MTB Duathlon (Minimum Training Time)
Justin KlineAll plans by this Coach
This program is designed for an MTB Enthusiast who is doing a Duathlon style race. Typical Run-Bike-Run Format. The Workouts are more intense with many rest days so that the Athlete with little time to dedicate to training can get in the Endurance Miles and the Intensity needed to be competitive. Some rides are better suited for an Indoor Bike Trainer but can be done on a flat section of road or trail. There is a combination of Running and Riding Intervals with a few Brick Sessions incorporated. If you are a busy professional who has limited time to train, this program was designed with you in mind.

Notes to the User:
Using a HR Monitor is a very effective tool for tracking fitness. But there are limitations. There is a phenomenon called Cardiac Drift. It takes your HR a little to raise to the desired level and it takes some time for it to drop. Just be aware of these limitations. There are also many times where there is a goal HR that is lower than what your heart rate might drop to. That's okay, you just need to run or ride at a pace or speed that you think it would take to get your HR there. The target HR is a tool used to help you set a pace or speed that coincides with the metabolic pathway that the workout is trying to work.
If you want to use the workouts on a trainer you can e-mail us directly and we will put the files into .erg and help you get going on whatever 3rd Party App you use.
