Plan Description

80/20 Endurance


The goal of this 12-week summer training plan is to get you ready for the fall cross country season. Designed for newer runners, it features a lighter training load that increases gradually from week to week, except in recovery weeks, which fall every fourth week. The typical week features five runs, one cross-training session, and a rest day. Note that the workouts in this plan are primarily prescribed by Duration, not Distance. Therefore, the plan summary will not reflect the total miles/kilometres, but does reflect the total Duration.


Lifetime Plan


All purchased 80/20 Endurance plans become a permanent part of your TrainingPeaks plan library. You can start, stop, and reuse the plan as often as you like, beginning or ending at any point in the plan.

Level Guarantee


Not sure which level is right for you? Review our Level Comparison Chart to find the best fit. Additionally, each 80/20 plan comes with a Level Guarantee: If you discover that the level you have selected is too hard or too easy for you, simply contact us for a complimentary switch to a different level within the same distance.


Structured Workouts


This plan leverages TrainingPeaks structured workouts with Pace-based workouts, but you can obtain a Heart rate-based version of this plan in the TrainingPeaks plan store. Each workout can be exported to a supported device, which will automatically guide you through the session with duration, lap, and intensity prompts. Workouts do not have to be exported to be performed effectively, as the detailed descriptions provide all the information you need to successfully complete the workout. See our Structured Workout page for more information.

80/20 Endurance

80/20 Endurance is the creation of Matt Fitzgerald and David Warden. Based on the breakthrough books 80/20 Running and 80/20 Triathlon, runners, triathletes, and other endurance athletes improve the most when they consistently do 80 percent of their training at low intensity and the other 20 percent high intensity. The typical endurance athlete spends only 50-70 percent their total training time at low intensity. The solution? An 80/20 training plan that ensures the optimal intensity balance.
