Plan Description

This plan is recommended for road racers (Cat 3/4) who are focusing on circuit races and road races 2-3hrs in length. A heart rate monitor is required. Power is not required, but it is recommended. Typical weeks will average 8hrs of training, with recovery weeks around 6 hours of training. Most weekday workouts are only 1hr. However there are some longer rides on the weekends.

This plan is for those who have already completed base training and have a solid level of general fitness heading into the racing season.

During the 8 week build phase the emphasis will be increasing threshold power, speed, and your ability to attack. The plan concludes with a two week taper before your A priority event.

As always, custom plans can be created specifically for your needs, contact Pete at www.holdfastcoaching.com
