What is 80/20 Training?

Co-created by Matt Fitzgerald and David Warden, these 17 new plans cover every distance from sprint to Ironman and every fitness level from brand-new beginner to advanced.

Not sure what level is right for you?
80/20 training worked so well for me this summer! I was able to run my usual 12k route 5 minutes faster and 10 bpm lower by the end of the summer compared to the beginning of summer. And my ultra went so well! I felt awesome! It was relentless, but I feel like I crushed it! I never thought it would be possible to do something like that and not suffer!
