Plan Description

The included plan has been converted to Training Peaks structured workout format, called Workout Builder. Not only will you see your individual training targets and zones for each workout through the daily workout e-mail reminders and mobile notifications, but you will also see a graphic representation of the workout within the Training Peaks web portal and Training Peaks mobile app. Now you can quickly get a sense of the entire Workout by taking a look at the visual representation which will show you the individual workout elements like warm up, main set(s) (including interval efforts (based upon your FTP) and cool down. You will no longer have to read through the full narrative and in some cases interpret it and calculate your FTP in order to grasp the task at hand.

Structured workouts built with the Workout Builder can now be exported for use in third-party apps and select devices including Garmin, Zwift, TrainerRoad, CycleOps Virtual Training, RacerMate, Hurts Ergo and more. Simply click “Export” after building and saving your workout and select the proper file format For more detailed information regarding exporting workouts go to

Are you looking to get to make this the best Cyclo-Cross season you’ve ever had? This is your chance!

This Hunter Allen Training Plan will help you get ready for a mud filled fall CX season.

I have put together an 8 week plan to help you reach all cyclo-cross goals this season and give you an extra edge on your competition!

This plan is built for the beginner cyclist to Cyclo-Cross but has created a basic level of fitness from cycling. This plan is built for someone with 6 to 8 hours to train weekly.

Please note that throughout this plan there are 3 options available for the weekend, so do not get discouraged by the amount of time listed at the end of each week. The total hours at the end of the week include a combination of all options on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday but you will only chose one of the three options on each of those days based on your race schedule.

If you are ready to get ahead of your Cyclo-Cross competition this season, this is the plan for you!!
