Achieve top fitness for L'Etape du Tour!
The training in this plan will result in big improvement in your threshold power and endurance which are the key ingredients when climbing the 4 mountain passes of the L'Etape du Tour! Specific interval workouts simulate the efforts required for long climbs and will work great even if you train on flat roads.
This plan will work for you if you have 1-2 hours available to train on week days and 3 hours+ available on a Saturday or Sunday.
The Plan includes a Power and Heart Rate zone calculator to determine your correct training intensities. Perceived Exertion zones are also included so even if you don't train with Power or Heart Rate this plan will still work for you.
Before starting the plan you should have a good level of endurance fitness and be accustomed to training 9-12 hours/week.
This plan is the result of 25 years of professional racing and coaching experience combined with the latest training methods. You will find the training plan highly descriptive and precise, guaranteeing you get the most out of each workout.
