Plan Description



Maintenance Series - 50 mpw to 60 mpw


"It's not what you get from your training, it's what you become from your training"

Who is this plan for?
Looking for a maintenance plan that will help you build your mileage from a consistent 50 mpw to 60 mpw? This plan is designed to be an off-season maintenance program without a peak race or taper. This is ideal for athletes who like to maintain a specific base mileage and are trying to slowly build up their mileage over the winter months. This 16 week program is built with a 3:1 periodization and an early focus on base work. Workouts are designed to keep all systems intact with rotations between hill sprints, tempo runs, and intervals. This plan is ideally used to build into your next race so that you have good around fitness so you can begin working on more specific fitness for your goal race.


This plan delivers a 16 week training schedule
This program is designed to be an off-season or build up supplement between goal races as a prep phase. 6 days a week of running with 2 workouts a week. Occasionally long runs will instruct for fast finishes to keep your endurance and capacity in check. This plan is a gradual build, and allows you to progress at a rate of 3-5 CTL points/ week for the average runner. You can couple this plan with our 12 week strength training supplement to make this 16 week plan a potent combo!


Before you jump into this plan you should be able to:
Confidently complete 3 weeks of back to back 40-45 mile weeks
Have experience with Marathon or longer nutrition and hydration strategies
