20 Weeks

Plan Description

This is a 20 week plan for any middle distance seventy point three mile event but ideally suited for The Lakesman half.

It is suitable for anyone with a reasonable fitness level. If you can run a 10km and swim 400m you can do this. It will get you in great condition to not only finish the event but get a great time.

You will train up to 6 days a week but there are no junk miles. Every session has a purpose. You can expect improved strength, speed and endurance.

Each week is less than 10 hours training, even the peak weeks. Through out you have e-mail access to the coach and one 30 minute consultation.
