Plan Description

Welcome to the second cycle of the Low-Volume Marathon plan.

This Low-Volume build plan is mainly about the building on the aerobic endurance stressor. Which is just a fancy way of saying 'improving your bodies ability to withstand longer runs'. There is also a single day reserved each week for building at a much faster pace the improves on your VO2 max (maximum oxygen uptake).

The plan is limited to just 4 runs a week and is periodized by TSS (training stress score). There are numerous sources that can tell you exactly what this is. If you'd rather get down to brass tacks, it's just the accumulation of stress from how fast you're going and how long you're going. This outputs a metric relative to your configured threshold on TrainingPeaks. This is why it's so important to take the fitness tests. It assures you're following these plans exactly as you're supposed to.

Good luck and if you have any questions, feel free to email me (louis.x.hughes@gmail.com).
