This is the plan for you! Buy this plan and you'll receive sessions completable with heart rate (HR), power or effort (RPE). You'll get key rides to ensure you are capable across every aspect of cycling; nutrition, hydration, technique, tactics and of course performance. Truly personal coaching without the expense of working with a coach 1:1. It has no more than 6:30 hours per week training & can be completed with a minimum of heart rate and cadence monitors. What's more we want you to succeed! Buy this plan and will provide you a free guide to download via a session in day one but if you do have any questions, please email coach@pavbryan.com and we will respond within 48 hours. 95% of the sessions you will do come with comprehensive instructions, links to videos, blogs or downloads, plus they can be directly uploaded to Garmin to complete! This plan has two midweek sessions (usually hour max), two weekend sessions (one and two hours), the Sunday session can be dropped if you need to catch up on one missed during the week. It also comes with two basic half hour core sessions (via a video) & two rest days per week. This plan presumes you have at least four weeks riding completed before starting, if you have not ridden this much consider doing a short body prep phase prior. Position on your bike (whether road or TT) will be crucial. You should consider having a professional bike fit prior to starting the plan. Then setup a mirror as your train to ensure you can hold the desired position. Get a friend to video you on the road or while racing, check you're racing in a similar position to your training. We would love to hear how you get on! Please find us on all social media platforms - @pavbryancyclecoaching
