Long-Range Training Plan

Start at the end!

How do you develop a long-range training plan? You start at the end of the training and work towards the present. In my case my A race is the Leadville 100 on August 22, 2020. So I started planning my training based on that date and worked my way back to the present date.

How did I go about making that training plan? I read Jason Koop’s book “Training Essentials For Ultrarunning”and ran my plan by a fellow ultra runner. Notice I said “read”! I would not suggest trying to create a long-range plan without reading the entire book first. There is a whole chapter dedicated on the topic of a long-range plan, but everything else in the book helps support it.

I originally had 8 week training blocks but after running the plan by a friend they said I would be burnt out if I went that route. One thing to keep in mind while reading the book is that the references used as examples are based on elite runners. Majority of us are not elite runners and need to adjust accordingly. After reading the chapter again and taking feedback from my friend I shortened my training blocks to 4 weeks.

So what does my long-range plan look like?

  2. Зеркало сайта Гидра, как им пользоваться?

    Не всегда получается открыть официальный сайт маркетплейса Hydra2web. В некоторых случаях он может быть заблокирован провайдером. В этом случае, вам нужно использовать Гидра зеркало, чтобы попасть на сайт и делать покупки в обычном режиме. Зеркало сайта находится на другом хостинге и может иметь другое доменное имя. Список доступных ресурсов всегда можно найти на официальном сайте или тематических сообществах.

    Как оплатить товары на сайте Hydra market

    Подобные ресурсы, включая Hydraruzxpnew4af, принимают исключительно криптовалюту. Это необходимо для того, чтобы иметь максимальную степень анонимности. Ведь крипто кошелек почти невозможно отследить.
