Plan Description

Welcome to the Build your Best Base Training Plan. Thanks for joining us. It’s been a tough year, but now is your chance to get all set for your best year yet next, and this plan will take you there. By now you’ve added the training plan to your TrainingPeaks account, and no doubt are digging through the workouts, anticipating what you’ll be up to for the next four months. In this section, we’ll define the terminology we’ll be using in the training plan, so workouts make sense to you.

This plan is excellent for all levels, and will focus on establishing your base and then extending your time at threshold between now and early spring of next year.

At minimum, you will need a Finis Tempo Trainer Pro to complete this program. All other gear is optional.
