Plan Description

Thanks for checking out one of my training plans! I'd love to start working with you.




You should have some riding under your belt before beginning this plan. Ideally, you've been on the bike 2-3x per week or other aerobic activities. The plan assumes that you are fresh and ready to start training. This is best achieved with a week off or easy week before you start the plan.

You can start this plan at any time during the season. You may notice more or less improvement depending on what you have done in the few months prior to starting this plan. Nonetheless, this plan will stress and improve all the physiological systems needed for improvements in your fitness.

This plan requires 6-8 hrs per week with the longer rides on the weekend. It is suitable for a rider with a normal work schedule, but may require time on the trainer during the week due to limited daylight.
