Training for Excellence, with Excellent Training

Wednesday Windtrainer Workout: 2020 Zwift Academy Primed FTP

As the saying goes “there are many ways to skin a cat” *. Instead of doing longer intervals at your Threshold pace, in this workout you will prime your lactate acid system first by doing an anaerobic effort prior to five minutes riding at your Threshold intensity. This session will help you develop that and is great for all cyclists including triathletes (especially draft legal athletes) and mountain bikers.

Tuesday Training Plan: Fitness Swimming Training Plan (Intermediate 8 week Plan) 3 swims per week

This programme will build your swimming fitness and develop your confidence and speed in the water even more.
Designed for Beginner & Intermediate triathletes and swimmers who are looking to improve their swimming fitness.

Saturday Swim Session: Hundred’s with and without Pull Buoy

I’ve been working on a new Fitness Swim Training Plan to improve your swimming over 8 weeks. The sessions for this programme are between 1,500m and 2,100m long and there are three sessions each week. I’ve got variations of the training plan for people who can complete four or five swims each week, as well as for people who can only fit two swims per week. As well as a 12, 16 and 20 week variation of the programme. This session is a key session in the programme.

Friday Fartlek Run: Jon Brown’s Sweet Spot

Running just above or just below your threshold pace will develop your ability to run at Threshold pace. This session has you running at your threshold pace and then recovering just below your threshold, meaning you don’t get much recovery within the workout. This is a great session for all runners and triathletes especially those running 5km & 10km events.
