Plan Description

80/20 Endurance


Meticulously crafted from the principles laid out in Matt Fitzgerald's bestselling book 80/20 Running, this OCR 3 to 8-Mile Level 2 training plan will provide you with the same workout structure used by the most successful OCR athletes in the world. It has been specifically formulated to ensure the athlete adheres to the 80/20 principle.


Target Athlete


This nine-week training plan will get you ready to rock your next Obstacle Course Race or other short to medium-course obstacle race of 3 to 8 miles. Designed for competitive athletes with a solid fitness base, the plan features four runs and three strength workouts per week. The training load increases gradually from week to week except in recovery weeks, which fall every third week. You should be able to run nonstop for at least one hour and have a few weeks or more of consistent strength training under your belt before you begin.


Lifetime Plan


All purchased 80/20 Endurance plans become a permanent part of your TrainingPeaks plan library. You can start, stop, and reuse the plan as often as you like, beginning or ending at any point in the plan.


Level Guarantee


Not sure which level is right for you? Review our Level Comparison Chart to find the best fit. Additionally, each 80/20 plan comes with a Level Guarantee: If you discover that the level you have selected is too hard or too easy for you, simply contact us for a complimentary switch to a different level within the same distance.


100% Structured Workouts


This plan leverages TrainingPeaks structured workouts with Pace-based workouts. Each workout can be exported to a supported device, which will automatically guide you through the session with duration, lap, and intensity prompts. Workouts do not have to be exported to be performed effectively, as the detailed descriptions provide all the information you need to successfully complete the workout. See our Structured Workout page for more information.


Support


Robust support and documentation for your plan can be found at the 80/20 Resources page. You will be able to contact the authors directly to request clarification on any issue.

80/20 Endurance

80/20 Endurance is the creation of Matt Fitzgerald and David Warden. Based on the breakthrough books 80/20 Running and 80/20 Triathlon, runners, triathletes, and other endurance athletes improve the most when they consistently do 80 percent of their training at low intensity and the other 20 percent high intensity. The typical endurance athlete spends only 50-70 percent their total training time at low intensity. The solution? An 80/20 training plan that ensures the optimal intensity balance.
