TARGET RESULTS: Roubaix/Gravel Race
ABOUT THE PLAN:
This training plan is made for cyclists who train with power, heart rate, or perceived exertion. We have provided an eBook on the first day of the plan that contains testing protocol and explains how to set your training zones within TrainingPeaks. That will allow you to know exactly where you are starting with the plan and provide the correct information for testing in the future.
This 12 week training plan is made for any racer ready to take on a Roubaix race.
This plan is comprehensive and is built on hundreds of hours of power analysis, race comparisons, data capture and past successes of the athletes I have coached.
You are going to have to be ready for VO2 efforts, big gear work, hard accelerations, and of course you’ll need the threshold power and muscular endurance to get you to the finish line in the front group. I have built this plan taking all of these unique demands into account and it will prepare you thoroughly well for a top performance at your race.
This is not a plan for the mediocre or pack filler. If you want to take it to the next level and ready to put in the work, then this is your plan. Be ready for some unique workouts, be ready for some hard workouts and be ready to do the workouts.
You’ll need between 8 and 12 hours a week to play with in order to get all of the work done in this plan.
Get this plan now and I know you’ll enjoy the guidance, workouts and plan as it will bring more focus to your workouts and also let you in on the secrets to succeeding at a Roubaix race!
The included plan has been converted to Training Peaks structured workout format, called Workout Builder. Not only will you see your individual training targets and zones for each workout through the daily workout e-mail reminders and mobile notifications, but you will also see a graphic representation of the workout within the Training Peaks web portal and Training Peaks mobile app. Now you can quickly get a sense of the entire Workout by taking a look at the visual representation which will show you the individual workout elements like warm up, main set(s) (including interval efforts (based upon your FTP) and cool down. You will no longer have to read through the full narrative and in some cases interpret it and calculate your FTP in order to grasp the task at hand.
Structured workouts built with the Workout Builder can now be exported for use in third-party apps and select devices including Garmin, Zwift, TrainerRoad, CycleOps Virtual Training, RacerMate, Hurts Ergo and more. Simply click “Export” after building and saving your workout and select the proper file format For more detailed information regarding exporting workouts go to http://help.trainingpeaks.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000325647-Structured-Workout-Export
