Plan Description

Chasing that PR? Feeling like you may have hit a hump in your distance training and your looking for another way to improve? Have you tried HR based training yet?

Chances are your either training to hard, or not pushing yourself hard enough when you should be. HR based training gives to the ability to focus on HR Zones rather than time speed zones. Because nothing measures your effort like that of your Heart Rate.

This plan will have you training in zones rather than in specific paces. Learn how to push past your boundaries, training easy on days that are meant to be easy and train harder on the days you should be training hard.

Most folks either train to hard when they should be training easy, or train to easy when they should be doing a hard workout.
