This plan is built for the more advanced competitive endurance cyclist (road or MTB) that can schedule 9-16 hours of training, including a weekly 4 to 6 hr endurance ride, as a way to quickly build cycling fitness. It's based on a proven method of alternating overload and recovery. Matt built all the workouts in TrainingPeaks with his unique approach to interval workout design, construction, and timing. This block can be paired with other blocks as part of a larger plan or repeated several times over (perhaps with increases of the longer rides in subsequent repeats of the block).
For athletes working Monday through Friday, begin this plan on a Monday (Fridays are Rest Days, and the long rides will be on Saturdays and Sundays). For athletes with other work schedules, it may work best for you to begin the plan on another day of the week.
This plan presumes the athlete already maintains a good degree of fitness, has been building base hours/miles over the prior weeks, and has recently established an accurate FTP.
This plan (at this price) does not include periodic communication with a coach, however if you're interested in adding that please shoot me a note so we can discuss how I can help.
*** All Eggleton Performance Coaching cycling training plans are best performed when the interval sessions are executed on a smart trainer and the non-interval sessions are ridden outdoors. Synch TrainingPeaks to Zwift, TrainerRoad, or Rouvy (perhaps others as well) and run the workouts in Erg Mode for the optimal experience and benefit. When riding outside in lieu of an interval session on the trainer do your very best to match the intensity level, duration, and TSS of the intended workout. Your form on race day depends on this.
