Welcome to the first step of your training for Century. This is a long journey to become a finisher but together we will make this race the most memorable and most fun race you have ever competed in. Please scroll through and if any questions arise please write them down and feel free to contact me at any time.
This plan is designed to prepare you to have your best experience at your Century ride. This has plan has been designed for athletes that have either competed in 100km distance races or Century rides in the past. This plan is HR based, if you would like to use a plan that has bike workouts that use power we have those as well. Please find these workouts in the TrainingPeaks store.

This plan has been built around four, four-week long training periods: The first period will be used to build fitness and prep your mind and your body for what lies ahead. The second period is designed as preparation period in which volume will increase as well as intensity. The third will be your build period which is designed to be the "meat and potatoes" of your training plan. This is where you will see the most improvement in both fitness and measurable data. Finally, we have the peak and taper period, this will be the last few sessions before your event. This is the most important training sessions you will face as these will determine how your race will be dictated.

This is designed around a simple idea of: 2 rest day (Monday and Fridays), 4-5 bike workouts, along with 1-2 run work outs spread throughout the week. The average week has seven hours worth of workouts planned and range from five hours to nine hours in weekly training.

This plan is the most comprehensive and user-friendly plan you will find. Only plans from Finish Strong Endurance come with this amount of support. We win when you do so buy this plan and will support you by providing you a free guide to download in day one and if you do have any questions you can email finishstrongendurance@yahoo.com and I will respond within 24 hours.

As stated this plan assumes that you have competed in some sort of long distance cycling in the past, please be able to:

 Bike: 1 hour continuously
 Run: 45 minutes continuously
