Plan Description

This plan is built for the "Weekend Warrior" that can schedule 6-10 hours of training per week (over 4-5 days per week) in preparation for an upcoming MTB season. It's based on proven methods of progressive overload and periodization.
For athletes working Monday through Friday, begin this plan on a Monday. Mondays and Fridays are rest days, Tuesdays and Thursdays are interval sessions (with an optional trail ride on Wednesdays), and the longer rides will be on Saturdays and Sundays. For athletes with other work schedules, it may work best for you to begin the plan on another day of the week.
This plan presumes the athlete already maintains a good degree of fitness and has recently established a fairly accurate FTP.

This plan (at this price) does not include periodic communication with a coach. If you're interested in the benefits of an experienced coach (and accountability partner) please shoot me a note so we can discuss how I can help (matt@eggleton.net).

*** All Eggleton Performance Coaching cycling training plans are best performed when the interval sessions are executed on a smart trainer and the non-interval sessions are ridden outdoors. Synch TrainingPeaks to Zwift, TrainerRoad, or Rouvy (perhaps others as well) and run the workouts in Erg Mode for the optimal experience and benefit. When riding outside in lieu of an interval session on the trainer do your very best to match the intensity level, duration, and TSS of the intended workout. Your form during the upcoming season depends on this.
