COVID-19 Quarantine Maintenance - 8-Week Running and Strength Plan
Taylor ThomasAll plans by this Coach
Despite race cancelations and postponments, there's still lots of things that athletes can do to maintain focus and fitness. Think of this time period as an opportunity to develop more fitness and work on any limiters that may be present. These running and strength workouts are designed to work on areas where most athletes can stand to see improvements. Aerobic efficiency and VO2 Max. The blend of workouts are designed to move athletes through a progression of indoor and/or outdoor focused sessions that will enable greater levels of foundational fitness that can be built upon when race schedules are firm later in the year. This can easily be repeated multiple times by simply increasing the percentages of FTP or Threshold Heart Rate that the intervals are performed at. Feel free to move the workouts around within a given week to fit any schedule, but try to complete all of the planned sessions within the prescribed week. We've also included several free resources within the plan to help athlete navigate this dynamic time period.
