Maintenance Training Plan-18 weeks is based on an average 10 hours per week commitment with builds to 14+ hours at the end of the plan. Plan includes rest days on Monday/Friday. Recovery week has a benchmark test after the rest period to assess improvements in fitness. This plan will work to maintain current fitness or if you’re just getting started with a base phase, it includes some higher intensity workouts built in to provide improvement in lactate threshold. Workout intensities are based on zones that can be determined from a field test and or a lactate threshold test. Plan also comes with a detailed description document (downloadable after purchase) outlining many details.
Setting annual training hours is one of the most critical decisions you make about training and will help make a realistic decision on if this training plan will fit your schedule. To help you determine annual training hours- Add up your hours you have trained in the previous twelve months. Now divide this number by 52 to get your average weekly hours. The number of hours you train in the coming season – including swimming, cycling, running, weights and cross-training – determines your training work load. The plan can be modified to decrease or increase the weekly hours to accommodate lower or higher annual training hour averages.
