About the Plan
This plan provides you with workouts and progressions towards cyclocross season. Workouts based around working on cyclocross skills and specific cyclocross fitness. The plan can be adjusted from ~6-15 hours per week, more restrictive or larger volume plans are best done as 100% made for you 3-month plans (see below)
The plan is 16 weeks long. The last 4 weeks should have your main races in it therefore many people are best applying to start in August to allow for October and November as the main race months.
Races are assumed starting about 1-month into the plan and directions for how to deal with no-race, single race, or double race weekends are provided.
Ideally, you will have completed a general preparation or 'base' phase to establish fitness and cycling skills before this more specific block of training.
I have an 'offroad base' plan in the training peaks library as well (see all my plans https://www.trainingpeaks.com/coach/peterglassford#trainingplans )
Some bike workouts include structured downloads for use on Garmin/Zwift/Trainer Road but please note that many workouts DO NOT have downloads as they are meant to be done on the cyclocross bike and adjusted to fit your specific needs.
A 10 min core routine is suggested around the main bike training.
Workouts provide options for outdoors or indoors depending on your location and weather.
