  1. The content is displayed in relation to the four training variables: intensity, volume, frequency and progression and for each of the 16 weeks. The kilometers to be completed in each running session are outlined in the collums of session 1 – 3. All kilometers are run at an intensity equal to easy pace, except if moderate or hard is specified (easy pace ≈ 50–80%VO2max, moderate pace ≈ 81–87%VO2max and hard pace ≈ 88–100%VO2max). The volume outlined in the parenthesis will then be completed in the specified pace. The progression is in total weekly volume. PPTis the abbreviation used for Physical Performance test
