Plan Description

Save Your Season: 8 Weeks to High Performance Time Trialing


written by Tim Cusick, TrainingPeaks WKO Product Leader and master coach with Velocious Cycling Adventures


WKO structured training plan


Train with the coach of champion Amber Neben and pro Emma Grant!

Our popular "8 Weeks to Peak" plans provide a great progressive build to use after you've established a good base foundation. They're also a great solution if you're approaching your goal event(s) and realizing your fitness is not where you'd hoped it would be by now. This 8-week training plan is designed for both masters racers and recreational racers, and it includes targets for heart rate, power (classic training zones), and perceived exertion.


The workouts can be used in the traditional format or as structured workouts, which load automatically to select devices (Garmin, RGT, ErgVideo, Zwift, TrainerRoad, Racermate, and more) so you can see your workout and interval numbers right on your device.


Included with your plan:
- Instruction booklet (attached to the first day of the plan)
- Testing protocol
- Coaching comments and tips
