Sample Day 1

1:00:00
EN: Zone 2: Endurance

Wattages should be 60 - 75% of your Functional Threshold Power; Heart rates should be in 70-85% of your threshold heart rate. Choose Flat or Flat-ish Terrain

Sample Day 2

0:45:00
RE: Active Recovery

Quick Cadence, very easy riding. Very little pressure to pedals. NO HARD efforts at all!

Sample Day 3

1:30:00
ST: Muscle Tension: 3x10 min

After a 20+ min warm up in Power Zone 1/2, complete 3x10 min ON, 5 min OFF. Maintain 40-60 cadence throughout the intervals. This is not a power based workout! Your power will naturally rise but you don't have power targets for this.

Sample Day 5

2:00:00
EN: Weekend Group Ride

Weekend Group Ride-Don't worry about intervals, etc today. Work on sticking wheels for the duration. Climbing hills strongly, pacelining together in a group and even launching attacks or trying for sprints. Overall this should be 'moderately hard' effort and also a bit of fun

Sample Day 6

1:30:00
ST: Muscle Tension: 3x10 min
