Middle distance training plan- 17 weeks
Ben CapperAll plans by this Coach
Welcome to the ultimate Middle distance training plan ;-)
The training sessions can be very challenging and tough physically and mentally. The plan is designed to push you to reach your ultimate performance. When it says 'Zone 5'.... it means zone 5, tough, horrible and painful and when it says 'Zone 2' it means easy, relaxed, I want you to feel better at the end than at the beginning.
Too many people are training their hard not hard enough and their easy too hard. This plan is designed to change all that and push your limits, so when you have your 'easy' rides, you will want them to be easy ;-)
The long endurance sessions can be done using millage or time depending what works best for you.
This also includes brick training sessions, add them in when you can, DO NOT over do them as they cause very high levels of fatigue with minimal positive outcome, do them sparingly and only when you feel 100%
Recovery weeks are just that!!!! Recover and relax, enjoy not having structured sessions to follow, go out with friends or family and sleep in... no early morning sessions if possible and get your early nights and enjoy the weekends ;-)
I am happy to help with any questions so please email email@example.com
Coaching is also available if you feel you would benefit from some extra support.
Have fun, enjoy, train hard and be awesome ;-)
