L'Etape du Tour (11 July mini 108km) Beginners 12 week plan
John Bennett ( Coach JJ)All plans by this Coach
Sportive Beginner 3-4 days per week
This plan is designed for the beginner Sportive rider who has only started riding in the last 6 months. The plan has you riding 3-4 days a week and progressively builds you, so that your weekends get a little longer and the workouts get a little harder throughout the plan. Don’t worry; you will improve as your plan progresses, so you will be ready for the harder workouts when you get to them. The plan uses different training zones, so you can use a heart rate monitor, power meter or just go on your 'feeling'(RPE-rate of perceived exertion). This is a great way to give yourself structure and keep you focused to attain your goals at your Sportive. Go for it and I know you'll really improve!
PLUS A FREE 30 page booklet ‘A Cyclists Guide To Riding Sportives’
Your plan comes with a FREE interactive training diary where you can enter and download all your training data, meals, heart rate and power readings. You can access your training diary from any computer, iPhone app or just print it off for a hard copy.!
