This plan is recommended for road racers who are focusing on crits and shorter circuit races. A heart rate monitor is required. Power is not required, but it is recommended. Typical weeks will be between 8-9 hours of training, with recovery weeks around 6.5 hours of training. Most weekday workouts are only 1-1.5hrs.
This plan will take you from the start of build training through your first A priority race.
During this build period the emphasis will be increasing top end power, and your ability to attack and sprinting. The plan concludes with a two week taper before your A priority event.
Throughout the plan you will perform field tests to gauge fitness and there are opportunities to incorporate level B and C races.
