Aerobic Volume based on Perceived Effort
Patrick SmithAll plans by this Coach
This plan is designed to increase aerobic base through easy to moderate effort. It starts with 7 hours per week and gradually increases to 11.5 hours during the longest week. There are no prescribed power zones. Everything is based on perceived effort. This plan is best for riders who are currently in the 6-8 hours per week riding volume looking to extend their time to exhaustion and general aerobic capacity.
All the workouts are low intensity and are not likely to produce significant post-workout fatigue. Scheduling is designed around 5 workouts per week with the longest ride falling on a weekend. Athletes can significantly adjust the volume per ride as long as their volume and intensity per week matches the plan.
