This program has a mix of on road training, off road training, dismount and remount drills, speed change drills, running (sprints) and cross specific strength work. This program is most suited for the veteran cyclocross racer looking for an edge, but will work for any level. If you are a beginner, be sure to email me any questions you might have.
This entire program is based on HR. Power can be used, but I have found, for most racers, power works best as a marker for improvements in fitness. The benefit of HR based training is that it takes into account your every day stresses too and keeps you from over training.
This program is aggressive, it's based on my own training I used as a Cat 1 cyclocross racer when I was racing full time. Remember to listen to your body and watch for overtraining markers. Bottom line, have fun with this because that's the point of 'cross racing anyway!
