Plan Description

Coach Pav

This plan is the latest version using all the latest TrainingPeaks features, current for 2021/22 and has been designed by me, Pav Bryan (coachpav.com) Amazon #1 New Release Author, BikesEtc Magazine’s 'Cycling Guru' and 'King of Endurance'.

Only my premium ("NEW!!") plans come with a free user guide (with new links to blog resources - sorry the links within each session no longer work) 40-week strength and conditioning plan (downloadable in session one on the calendar) and email support! If you have any problem completing your plan or have to deviate for any reason – I will personally recommend a solution within 24 hours.

This plan is designed for anyone taking on Omloop Het Niewsblad. There is a link to access some event information in the day one notes. Where available, I have included a route map. Where applicable, if you are doing a shorter route, you could consider reducing the longer ride so that it maxes out at no more than your target distance. Consider doing a course recce, if you're unfamiliar, and making your longer rides as similar to the event itself as possible; hills and terrain.

To be capable of fully completing this plan you must be able to ride at least 80km per week. If you can ride more than this, you can simply start doing the key rides at your current best duration and progress very slowly until the plan catches up with you. If you aren't planning on doing a 200km event, you can simply cut down the weekend longer ride - this also means you can start at less than 80km. Email us if unsure!

This plan includes 2x core sessions per week, with link to instructional video which you can follow. It has one key ride per week, which must be done - you do not need to worry about the time, just get the miles completed. It has two rest days per week and the remaining sessions compliment the key ride. You can change the hill reps to be more similar to the type of hill you will face during your event. It would be very advantageous for you to visit the cobbles of the event you will be doing, this will allow you to test bike handling skills and comfort.

This plan is totally compatible (upload-able/exportable) with all good platforms including Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest and many more.

You can use any method to monitor your training, power, cadence, heart rate or rate of perceived exertion, although power is an advantage. You get key rides and further resources (links within the sessions on the calendar) to ensure you are capable across every aspect of cycling; nutrition, hydration, technique, tactics and of course performance.

All the sessions you will do come with comprehensive instructions, links to videos, blogs or downloads, plus they have the workout builder function; full power, heart rate and cadence targets (where applicable).

Please note that my "NEW!!" plans don't come with a taper before any events (if applicable). This is mainly because most athletes have their own taper specific to them and less taper weeks means more training weeks! Feel free to get in contact if you need help with your taper, but remember to time to end of this plan so there is a gap between it and your event.

If you are using heart rate or RPE and would like a plan tailored to this, please visit coachpav.com for info on bespoke plans.
