Plan Description

This is the second phase of your training to prepare for Chefs Cycle 2020 in Bend Or. Even though the event is postponed for 2020 we wanted to celebrate your hard work thus far AND dedication to the cause. As such here is the next phase of training that will have you fit and fast for whatever comes this summer. We have set up the program to have shorter, indoor riding for being responsible with social distancing and the current climate in the world. IF you are allow outside you can always add time, but do so responsibly please.

Having spent the past 8 weeks on base of fitness in the O2/endurance energy system its time to move into lactic threshold development. Your goals are: 1. Keep consistent in your training. Make it a daily priority. Add workouts to your schedule and hold your self accountable. Create good habits around your training. 2. If you miss a workout, move on. This phase will build into the coming phases. If you move workouts down the line there will be a ripple into the next rounds of training. 3. Ask question of Coach Adam and Coach Colin. We can be reached at cizzard@trainright.com and apulford@trainright.com 4. Finally- have fun! This is for a great cause AND it will give you personal fitness goals! A final note- you can add more time to the rides but keep the pace to the theme of the block. IE endurance pace. Do not add intensity. Also, never add so much time in the saddle that you are not able to complete the upcoming workouts. Remember goal 1- consistency.
