This 20 week plan, with tune up races, is for the aspirational higher-level middle-distancemale/female performer who is looking to bridge the gap to elite level performance sub 1:50/2:04 800m or sub 3:46/4:081500m. It will run from an off season base phase but will require that the athlete starts the programme with a reasonably high level of fitness and is comfortable running 6 days per week. The plan also includes two gym workouts per week, one focused on Activation & Resilience the other focused on Strength.
