Plan Description

This plan is geared at the cyclocross racer with 9-12 hours a week to train and wanting to sharpen your ability to handle the intensity of cyclocross racing across repeated hard efforts and improving lactate threshold. This plan assumes you've already established a good solid aerobic base. This plan builds upon the foundation you built during your base period by strengthening your anaerobic capacity so you can handle repeated difficult efforts, maintain the threshold work you've already done so you can have the endurance to be competitive late in the race, and continue in building some consistent top end strength so you can handle the off and on power demands of cross racing. Much of the intervals are built into the weekdays to allow for flexibility to replace some of the endurance weekend rides with races if so desired.

**All workouts in this plan are smart capable and can be dowloaded for use on your cycling computer or smart trainer.
