My Mountain Marathon Training Online Program – Week 11

It’s been very hot and very hard here at Cyprus, but I can see that the results are coming.

My training program is evolving, and the paces are getting longer now. It’s very hot here at Cyprus (about 35 degrees) and I have been running with extreme high pulse all week because of the heat.

The training method with lots of low pulse running + some very high pulse running + strength training + stretch is working very well for me and my VO2 max is getting better and better.

If you like to see the whole training program from week 1 start here.
