Focuses on continuous adaptation through non-linear periodization. This plan gradually increases intensity and duration with a 2 week easy lead in and then alternates higher TSS days with active recovery. Perfect for cyclists of all genres. The is plan is a culmination of race test application by TRC cyclists. I placed one race taper day mid way that can be applied to any day prior to the race.
*Ensure that in race week you balance maintaining fitness (CTL) while lowering fatigue (ATL) and having positive form (TSB). Watch your performance indicators to tailor this training to your needs.
