Plan Description

Coach Simon Kessler became the 2016 Florida State Road Race champion in the Masters A 40-44 age category with 6 weeks of focused training averaging 8-11 hours/week. This plan mimics the training coach Simon performed to get into race winning form.

The Plan is designed to work with your busy schedule and averages between 8-11 hours/week. You may increase ride times, if you have more time. The key to this plan is the highly specific intervals that are going to bring you in to top form and your best power. The plan is designed with the options to do competitive group rides or races on weekends in the build up to your goal road race.

The Plan includes a Power and Heart Rate zone calculator to determine your correct training intensities. Perceived Exertion zones are also included so even if you don't train with Power or Heart Rate, this plan will still work for you.

Before starting the plan you should have a good level of endurance fitness and be accustomed to training 7+ hours/week.

This plan is the result of 25 years of professional racing and coaching experience combined with the latest training methods. You will find the training plan highly descriptive and precise, guaranteeing you get the most out of each workout.
