Plan Description

For cyclists with lofty goals for the coming season, a big aerobic base is crucial! A big base is equivalent to a massive Hemi engine which will power you through the season! A key to doing so will be time spent at SWEET SPOT!

The goal of this plan is to increase your training load week to week, as we increase your aerobic capacity. To do this, you'll complete long weekend rides and interval sessions during the week. The efforts are designed to accumulate more training stress (TSS) and achieve higher quality workouts. By the end of the training plan, you will feel comfortable at all intensities below FTP (time trial-pace) and be prepared to begin race-specific efforts.
