Plan Description

This is an intermediate plan for the age grouper. This plan maximizes your training time with focus weeks, no junk miles and specific workouts to have you 100% ready for race day.

My Plans:
This plan is designed to maximize time in the fall and winter months when training out side can be tough. We have even seen gains in threshold power on the bike and speed in the water and greater efficiency on the run. This is due to the flexible but detailed "focus" periodization we use.
This phase is designed to focus more on the run. in winter months we find it easier for the athlete to focus more on running while keeping bike workouts shorter while on the trainer.
structured workouts and optional instructions will help guide you throughout this plan.
Weakness workouts give you more flexibility to train you, the unique athlete as opposed to simply trying to mimic your race demands.

Managing your plan:
The average hours may seem low but time is easily added to the weekend workouts. when the weather is nice or if you live in a non winter area simply do what ever “work” is required
in that workout after a good warm up and add more time/ milage after the harder intervals as you like!
This plan comes with doc's on managing your plan, descriptions of zones, core strength routines and more.
