This is a 21 week Winter base plan with a maximum of 10 hours training per week. This plan will suit those who want to get a good base of training but still maintain a semblance of normaility in their life. If you can reach 21 weeks having completed 275 hours of training you WILL be in good shape. This version of the plan is for those who would like to focus more on their swimming
The goal here is to find the speed that allows you to hold a constant HR for each of the 3 reps.
You have a range of 3-5bpm to work within.
Your goal pace is Vdot MP (approx 80%mhr)
If your HR strays outside of this then you'll need to reduce the pace
This session is designed to develop your aerobic capacity. It's a tough set and you will need to be rested and extremely motivated
These intervals are done at 92-100%mhr although with such short intervals it will be difficult to get your HR into the correct zone. Just go by effort 9.5 or 10/10 on RPE scale
If you are using power then aim for 110-115%ftp
BT: "KEY SET"
Endurance run - Steady run designed to build endurance. Your effort will probably be Vdot E/L pace For the warm up rather than doing a formal set of strides just run for 10 mins as 15s fast cadence and 30s EZ jog on a flat part of your route then drop into your long run pace
"All day" pace, or classic long slow distance (LSD) training. Sensation of leg effort/fatigue generally low, but may rise periodically to higher levels (e.g., when climbing). Concentration generally required to maintain effort only at highest end of range and/or during longer training sessions. Breathing is more regular than at level 1, but continuous conversation still possible. You shoul;d finish feeling pleasantly tired, not exhausted If you do this on the indoor trainer then ONLY RIDE FOR 1HR 40 MINS
