Plan Description

This is a great general training plan using some of my workouts for those wanting to build their cycling fitness.

It features a mix of Heart Rate based sessions (generally endurance) and Power Meter based sessions (generally the shorter intervals)

It assumes that you have tested recently before starting the plan. If you haven't, have a couple of easy days then do the test featured at the start of week 9 of this plan.
This test gives a great indication of progress across the entire power profile.

There is a recovery week every 4 weeks.

If you can't fit in the longer rides, amend as necessary but results may vary in terms of progress.

If you want a specific plan for a certain goal, or haven't got a power meter and want all the workouts based on Heart Rate, let me know and I can look at doing a bespoke plan for you.
