I’m very curious to start with the training group 🙂 But still I have some questions:
I’m preparing for two trail races:
1) July 29
Distance : 37km
Altitude: 1.500m positive / 2.200m negative
2) September 3-4
Distance Day 1: 43km
Altitude Day 1: 2.180m pos / 2.040m neg
Distance Day 2: 31km
Altitude Day 2: 1.770m pos / 1.840m neg
Till now I did 4 units a week
– 2 easy runs
– 1 anaerobic run like intervals, hill sprints…
– 1 long trailrun at the weekend (2:00h to 3:30h duration) with different distances and altitudes
I didn`t focus a lot on strength training, to be honest I did far too little of it.
Currently I’m on the intermediate training plan and regarding the weekly duration this seems fine for me. But there aren’t any anaerobic workouts foreseen and the workouts on weekends are much shorter and much lighter compared what I did till now.
Is this training plan nonetheless fine for me or should I change one of the aerobic runs to a anaerobic?
And should I stick to the hikes suggested in the plan or should I do my trailruns? Or does it make sense to do one week a hike, the other week a trailrun.
Building aerobic capacity is an important goal for me, I’m not very strong in this. So therefore the training plan seems perfect – but does it fit to my races?
Thanks a lot for your advice!
