Peaks Coaching Group
Cycling Maintenance 8 Weeks is an 8 week plan designed for the Cyclist or Triathlete who trains with power, HR (Heart Rate), or RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) and can train 8:45-14:20 hours per week. You will need to be able to devote between 4-5:30 hours to training on your weekends.
The goal of this plan is to maintain your fitness as we head towards a transition period or any time you want to just pause your "improvement cycle" or delay a peak of fitness. The plan will focus mostly on Tempo workouts with a few NP (Neuromuscular Power), AC Anaerobic Capacity, and VO2 max workouts to keep those systems firing. You still do some workouts and intervals, don't worry, but there will not be many of them (or as many as you are probably used to!) and your hours should be consistent with previous weeks or a drop down from those hours. It will also include some group rides as well as alternate workouts for those of you who don’t have local group rides available or who choose to opt out of local group rides.
