16 Weeks

Plan Description

A 16 week Ultra Marathon training plan.

The plan is based on four runs per week with two strength and conditioning sessions per week.
The workouts are built using rate of perceived exertion (RPE) but the descriptions give instructions of how to use heart rate zones with this training plan.

This would be a great plan for the first time ultra runner. However, if you have covered more than a marathon distance before but have not trained following a structured plan you would be sure to see great results with this plan.

The plan starts with four weeks of aerobic running. Later phases add hill repetitions, tempo and progression runs. The plan also has reduced volume recovery weeks.

The plan tapers down in the final two weeks with instructions for a Saturday or Sunday race.

This plan is suitable for off road marathon and up to 60 mile events. Instructions are given on how to adapt the weekend run for different events.

At Enduraprep we have worked with athletes towards ultra events such as Badwater 135 and Marathon Des Sables. We know our approach works if you follow it with consistency and discipline.

This plan would match very well with the results from our VO2 Max testing. The plan includes how to use the zones from these tests.
