Plan details

It is intended that this will compliment your existing riding routine and you should take care to schedule it accordingly. Please feel free to customise the warm up and cool down phases to suit your personal protocol.

Training in ladder form is a well established method of managing fatigue whilst hitting your target intensity.

You will be training around your FTP. I am interested to find out whether these workouts will allow you to increase your capacity at threshold and give you the conditioning to recover from the intervals over the course of the plan. This is not part of academic study and is purely to determine whether the format of format feels about right to experienced cyclists.

I would appreciate your feedback throughout and upon completion. If you would like me to review your progress please use this link to connect accounts: https://home.trainingpeaks.com/attachtocoach?sharedKey=KFM3UNS43KKB

Let me know if the intensity is right, the intervals are engaging and whether you are motivated to complete this plan. Please be very careful around the accumulated fatigue - get in touch if you need help, don't risk burnout!
