Sample Day 1
1:00:00
FTP test

bike test for power
10 min easy
then 8 min build build from 50% ftp to 100% ftp in 2 min steps.
2 min easy
then
time trial for 20 min at your hardest effort that you can sustain for the full 20 min.
10 min easy.

build into this effort, start conservative and finish stronger than you start, 20 min is a long time if you're pushing to hard.

your legs will have a burn and you'll be breathing hard. try to keep your cadence at 65-75rpm, if your legs get rubbery, you start to slow down,or your cadence drops then you are going to hard.
