12wk Road Race Preparation Plan w/Peak
Zach NehrAll plans by this Coach
A 12-week training plan to help build towards your first road race. A few key workouts each week will test your high-intensity thresholds, with enough rest built in between that you will be able to recover in time to crush your next workout. Weekday rides are an hour or less, with a bit more time and flexibility on the weekends to help build your endurance and give your mind a break from the highly-structured weekday workouts. A threshold test at the beginning of this plan will help determine your training zones that we will use in your training in the lead-up to the race. This plan includes a B race in Week 9, and an A race in Week 12, with each week altered to meet the demands of the racing and training calendar.
