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 is for the cyclocross rider with 6-10 hours a week to train. Note that on the weekends (Friday - Sunday) you will have multiple workouts listed. You need to choose ONE option based on your race schedule. Also note that because of the options, your time listed at the end of the week will appear higher.
This plan is a great way to get you involved in the sport, to learn more about it and to be ready for the racing season.
This is the plan for you if you would like a bit of instruction and are not afraid of doing some hard work and getting muddy.
