Road and Circuit Race - Build/Peak/Race Plan for Intermediate Riders
Pete MacLeodAll plans by this Coach
This plan is recommended for Experienced Cat 4 and Cat 3 Road Racers. A heart rate monitor is required. Power is not required, but it is recommended. Typical weeks will be around 9-10 hours of training, with recovery weeks around 7 hours of training.
One of the benefits of this plan is the ability to adapt it to your needs. You have the option to do the Endurance Rides on either your road, cross, or mountain bike.
This plan is designed for those who have flexible work/school schedules as there are some lengthy mid-week endurance rides (up to two hours, but most are 90min or less).
The plan starts with a Field Test week then the intensity ramps. Specific interval days are set up to maximize time and prepare for the specifics of road and circuit races. The plan concludes with a taper period and your first A priority race.
All workouts are set up with the workout builder for easy integration with smart trainers.
As always, custom plans can be created specifically for your needs, contact Pete at www.holdfastcoaching.com
