Starting your racing season and want to build a base of swim, bike and run before you get into your full 70.3 training plan? This is a four-week endurance base building plan that incorporates swim, bike, run and strength into your work outs. Ideally you'll have a heart rate monitor to start with. If you purchase this plan would like the trainer rides adjusted for RPE, please contact me and I can customize if for you.
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.
