Summary

EK Endurance Coaching Plans:
Big event ahead, Big goals, Little time. Streamline your training with better, more effective workouts and periodization for a low cost.

This plan is built for the intermediate Triathlete looking to race mostly sprint and Oly distance tri's with the possibility of a 1/2 this coming year.
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 a flexible but detailed "focus" periodization we use.
You will see up to 10 hours of training per week depending on the phase.
This plan comes with doc's on managing your plan, descriptions of zones, core strength routines and more. e-mail us at eric@ekendurancecoaching.com if you have any questions setting up your plan or training zones.
