Plan Description

Build 1 is where the rubber starts to meet your VO2max!

Seriously, the focus of this block is on building your HIT capacity via a variety of focused VO2max level workouts and solid efforts on less focused days. You should have a good base of both aerobic fitness and threshold development (sweet spot type efforts) before you begin this program. Mixing in weekend racing is also a great way to start building your form for the coming race block!

So, You're thinking of hiring a coach but how do you begin to sort the wheat from the chaff? Well, I think street cred and experience matters. I've been developing as a coach for over 25 years thru competition, education and experience. I coach both power and heart rate, incorporate your life into your training plan, and put a lot of focus on skills and tactical development instead of just power numbers and HIT.
