-'Double day's to prepare for the HTC frequency of running
-Tempo and steady state runs to improve the specific endurance needed for HTC
-Strides (short fast runs) to improve running economy and offset 'staleness'
-Long runs to improve general endurance
Beginner's HTC Training Program (recommended for those currently running 15-20 mpw in 3-4 runs)
