Training Load By Week

Plan by Timon Abegglen

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

Alternatively, in each training session the target load is given as follows:
Borg (= subjective stress sensation; a scale can be downloaded as PDF from -> http://www.marmotatrailrunning.ch/downloads/BORG-Skala.pdf)
heart rate (in percent of maximum heart rate)

Sporty conditions:
For runners with wattmeter: your own FTP (Functional Threshold Power) is known or will be 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
training level is 5 runs/week and 25km runs at a stretch

If you have any problems, we will be happy to help you set up the individual training zones/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
