Although this is a traditional speed session for 5k and 10k runners, there are benefits for those running marathon (as well as half marathon distance as well) as this session came from a marathon training plan.

Wednesday Windtrainer Workout: QK WT Class II

Back in 2007 I conducted windtrainer class. I had a fleet of Minoura Mag-800’s and I hired a hall had a great group of athletes that would join me once a week for a tough session (similar to Spinervals by Coach Troy Jacobson except I also rode with my athletes and sweated up a storm along side them). I’ve recently been tidying up some old boxes in the garage and found my old lesson plans and the music to go along side them. This was the session I took for the very first class. Although primarily designed for triathletes this session is great for anyone wanting to boost their FTP (yes, I was training with power back then with the old Polar WIND power meter temperamental as it was).
