This Beginner-Novice 24 week plan is very progressive in nature and is based around consistent training over a 6 month period. The plan starts in week 1 with 8 hours of training and the increases in volume and load are VERY gradual over the 24 weeks.

If you purchase this plan you can email dave@traintoendure.com for:
* An Intensity Guide Index
* A Guides toward race day fueling
* A Guide toward race day pacing
* Reduced pricing on athlete consultation
* A Guide toward adjusting for lower priority races

All shorter, mid week cycling sessions are scripted in detail and done on the indoor trainer for time efficiency.

The plan is designed with optional easy OR off days and is also flexible enough that you can move sessions as they fit in your schedule better

Week 12 in to week 13 is scheduled as a VERY EASY unloading phase to prepare for the final phase of the plan. IF the schedule works week 12 could also be a good chance to do a 70.3 (or any) race
