This training plan is for healthy runners looking to maintain fitness over a 6 week period. Weekly running time is about 6 hours and total workout time is about 8. Workouts are written by time and the first week has a test for aerobic threshold so you can run the plan using the HR that is right for you.
Great for use after an intense training block, around the holidays or if you are feeling burned out on figuring out your own running plan to stay fit to train later. This plan helps you keep up consistency and motivation with a daily workout practice. Runs have a focus on drills and because the intensity is mostly aerobic, the workouts should leave you feeling energized, not depleted. The plan includes some cross training and consistent strength training to build good athletic movements and great habits on the way to starting up a new training block like race prep or hill work. This plan will keep you in the game. Athletes should have a watch with HR and a willingness to commit to training daily.
All athletes using this plan are encouraged to join the FREE live Zoom Strength Training for Runners sessions on Wednesday nights. For details see http://www.ultraufitness.com/strength-training-for-runners--home-edition.html
Start this plan on a Monday for workouts to fall in place correctly.
