Long Course Plan Using FTP & HR Thresholds - 8 Week Base Build Phase
Christina EngerAll plans by this Coach
This is a great 8-week endurance base building program is a combination of my two four-week plans, there are some savings if you purchase this full plan. This plan is for advanced beginner athletes and above who have access to a power meter and heart rate watch. Average training starts at 5 hours per week and peaks at 8. This will create a great base for you to go into your race training phase. This plan includes two strength sessions per week as well as programmed swim, bike and runs. All you need to get started prepping for your next race.
