Janine K PleasantAll plans by this Coach
Thank you for selecting this Couch to Trail training plan, proudly presented by LB Endurance.
The plan is intended to prepare you to complete a 4 day or longer hike with an average of 8 miles per day or more. This could include overnight backpacking or a series of day hikes. The goal is to complete your hike healthy and happy!
You do not need to already be hiking to start this plan. If you are already hiking short distances you may slightly increase the distance specified in the first 3 weeks of the plan.
Each training week will include 5 to 6 walks/hikes and 2 to 3 strength training sessions that can be done at home with minimal equipment. Strength training is a critical component to reduce the risk of injury during training and your hike. Every week will include one full rest day for recovery.
Training to carry a weighted backpack is imbedded in the plan with the weight increasing over time.
The plan also includes several tips and reminders to help you prepare for an enjoyable event, including guidance on nutrition, gear, logistics planning, and hydration.
Please have a doctor’s approval before starting this, or any exercise program.
