Matt Fitzgerald & David Warden - Over 55,000 Training Plans Sold 8020Endurance.comAll plans by this Coach
This 12-week summer training plan is designed to get you ready for the fall cross country season. Created especially for runners with some experience, it features a moderate training load that increases gradually from week to week, except in recovery weeks, which fall every fourth week. The typical week includes five to six runs, one or two cross-training sessions, 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.
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.

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.
