Plan Description

“Test the Simon Says Cycling Coaching Group membership plans and take your cycling to the Next Level!”

Training plan description: We are excited to offer you a free trial (use coupon code: trial) of our $49/month Coaching Group training plans! The training plan includes two training sessions each day on your calendar. One session will have a Race (labeled "R") focus and another session will have a Fitness (labeled "F") focus.

The Race focus is designed for cyclists who want to be competitive in local group rides, races, and gran Fondo style events. The Fitness option will work better for you if your goals are long term fitness and endurance gains with training less intense compared to the Race plans. Both plans average around 6-12 hours/week and can be adjusted to fit your work and life weekly schedule.

The training is with Power and is designed in the Workout Builder format which provides your personalized power zones in each training session which are calculated automatically from your Threshold number inputted under settings. Additional benefits of the Workout Builder format include direct training session sync to your Garmin or Wahoo device and training session upload to Zwift, TrainingRoad, CycleOps and more.

Sample Day 1

Threshold R

Threshold intervals to build FTP.

The goal is to keep a smooth and consistent effort throughout the interval. These intervals are best performed on a flat terrain, steady climb, or indoor trainer.

Sample Day 1

Big Gear F

Big gear interval to develop muscular strength endurance.

The big gear interval is best performed on a route with no stops and on a relatively flat terrain or indoor trainer. Stop or increase the cadence, if you have any knee or other unusual pain.

Switch up your body position regularly during the big gear so that you ride holding in the drops, on the brake hoods, and on the top of the bars.

After big gear spin at a high cadence and include some max cadence spin-ups at a moderate intensity. Focus on staying very relaxed and avoid bouncing in the saddle.

Sample Day 2

Ride on feel - group option R & F

Road / All Zones / SS rpm. Ride as you feel with no structured training. You can do a group ride (optional). Enjoy the bike!

Sample Day 3

Sub Threshold + V02 R

Alternating 4 minutes at Sub Threshold / 1 minute at V02 repeated.

Your target power is listed. Aim to average within 10 watts (above or below) the power listed.

Sample Day 3

Tempo with High Cadence F

Tempo intervals with a focus on high cadence. When doing the 2 minutes at a higher cadence focus on staying very relaxed, hold in the drops or on the brakes in a somewhat aero position. See if you can ride comfortably over 110 rpms.

Sample Day 5

Endurance Tempo Ride R

Long tempo ride at your preferred cadence. This ride will become gradually more fatiguing over time. If you ride on a hillier route you may be over the zone on hills and below on downhills. Aim to average in the tempo range.

Fueling for a long tempo ride is important. You'll be burning both fat and some carbs. A pre ride meal with both is a good idea as well as some back-up nutrition in your pocket.

Sample Day 5

Endurance F

Endurance ride mostly in Zone 1-2.
