The norwegians Ingebritsen is 3 of the best 1500,3000,5000 runners in the world and have shared most of theyre training. Im wondering if it is possible to convert this type of base training to cycling.
Day 1: 45min Endurance + 45min Endurance
Day 2: 45 Min Easy Treshold (Sweetspot?) + 45Min harder treshold
Day 3: 45min Endurance + 45min Endurance
Day 4: 45 Min Easy Treshold (Sweetspot?) + 45Min harder treshold
Day 5: 45min Endurance + 45min Endurance
Day 6: 2 rounds of 10x40/80 + 45Min harder treshold
Day 7: 90Min Tempo (20km)
*45min intervall is probably 30 min time of intervall and 15-30min warm up/down
2 a day every day but sunday, keep repeating same week excluding need for recovery weeks.
Anyone have any toughts on this training and what parts that could be good/not good to do as a cyclist.
Much bigger muscular demands on running so the times/volume would be upped allot for a cyclist.
I read allot in here how much people hate recovery week, and wondering why this week is so important, would it not be better like these runners do that they keep theire load as high as they can without the need for recovery weeks. This would accumulate higher load over time.
I’m in recovery week now, and it feels so bad :).
