Training Load By Week

Plan by Timon Abegglen

Technical requirements:
A power meter (e.g. stryd -> www.stryd.com) is recommended. This is the most precise way to document your training performance in trail running.

Alternatively, the load specification is also specified as follows in each training unit:
Borg (= subjective feeling of stress; a scale can be downloaded as PDF at -> http://www.marmotatrailrunning.ch/downloads/BORG-Skala.pdf)
heart rate (as a percentage of maximum heart rate)

Sporting requirements:
for runners with wattmeter: the own FTP (Functional Threshold Power) is known or is determined before starting the plan. On day 1 of the plan you will find the unit "FTP-Test" with all necessary details in the description.
aerobic basic endurance is built up

In case of problems, we will be happy to help you set up your individual training zone/account settings:

Sample Day 1
0:55:00
76TSS
FTP test (if not known or not tested for some time)

Your FTP corresponds to the average watt over the 20min test minus 5%.


Example:
Normalized Power (NP) over 20min = 260 Watt
260-5%=247 Watt FTP

In your TrainingPeaks account settings under "Zones" you will find the item "Run Power" (or must be created).

At the point "Threshold" enter "247", underneath "Auto Calculation" select "Choose Type" select "Threshold" and at the point "Choose Method" select "Jim Vance - Running (7)".
Then click on "Calculate" and "accept".
Save and you're done. :-D
