This is a great 8-week endurance base building program is a combination of my two four-week plans, there is some savings if you purchase this full plan. This plan is for advanced beginner athletes and above who have access to a power meter and heart rate watch. Average training starts at 5 hours per week and peaks at 8. This will create a great base for you to go into your race training phase. This plan includes two strength sessions per week as well as programmed swim, bike and runs. All you need to get started prepping for your next race.
It's time to test. Determining your functional threshold power (FTP) is an ideal way to train for the bike portion of your race. You're going to test every 8 weeks.
We're going to determine your heart rate zones based on Joe Friel's Lactic Threshold run test. you can do this run outside, on a track or a treadmill. You need somewhere that you can run consistently for the entire testing time.
