Many GTD runners use the challenging winter session to build a physical and mental base that carries them through the entire year. There is a magic that happens as you finish a workout on a crisp winter evening, and you know you’ve gained a personal edge regardless of your goal. You may be training to stay in shape, run your first race, or win your next race. The GTD Winter Program is the path to your goal.

Did you know

that your workout week begins on Monday and ends on Sunday?
When you look at the program Fernando gives you, remember that your weekly mileage goes from Monday through Sunday.
This may not be news to most runners.
But at least one of us has done it all wrong for 30 years!

Why a Winter Program?

The purpose of the Winter Workout Program is to provide an educational running experience and a strength foundation that will enhance your ability to stay healthy and achieve personal goals for the year.

At the conclusion of the program you will understand how to create a strength or base program in the future. You will develop the high aerobic and strength capacity to safely participate in and benefit from the next workout phases and racing in the spring, summer, and fall.
