Plan Description

Written by 17 minute 5K runner Simon Olney, this plan will help those with busy lives struggling to dip under 20 minutes achieve their goal with two rest days a week, including one on the weekend.

For this plan you'll need a running watch with GPS functionality, but that's about it. Targets are based on pace so no need to heart rate but I recommend you record it if you can to give you an idea of how your body is reacting to the training load.

Keep your threshold the same on TrainingPeaks for this plan (or use your current PB to calculate yours in your settings), but ensure that for the sub 20 paced sessions you're running at or below 4:00 per KM, regardless of what the targets tell you.

If you have any questions before purchasing this plan or during the training itself, drop me an E-mail at Simon@phazontriathlon.com and I'll do my best to help you.
