WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS PROGRAM
This program is a 20 week lead in. It progresses quite conservatively, and there is an emphasis throughout this program on teaching you pacing and consistency, both of which are critical to training and racing.
This plan progresses through 4 week training blocks consisting of 3 weeks of work and 1 lighter recovery week.
Our running programs are designed using training fundamentals proven to enhance performance. Inserted strategically each week are various forms of aerobic, anaerobic and high intensity running specific training sessions.
At The Distance, we fundamentally believe in teaching our athletes the art of pacing. This program is based around Pace as a % of threshold. There is initial Testing to identify key metrics and every session specifies a pace/effort that you should complete it at.
