Achieve your Fastest Hotter'N Hell Hundred 50-100 mile distances! This plan will work for you whether you are riding the 50 mile, 100km, 75 mile, or the 100 mile distance. The specific training includes reduced options in time and intervals on each training day for those riding the short distances (50-75 mile).
The training in this plan will result in big improvement in your muscular endurance and threshold power which are the key ingredients for a successful Hotter'N Hell Hundred. Specific interval workouts simulate the efforts required for the course profile of the HHH. Also included in this plan are some pro tips on hydration and nutrition in the heat and what the pros do to bring down their core temperature in hot conditions to ensure peak performance.
This plan will work for you if you have 1-1.5 hours available to train on week days and 2-3 hours+ available on a Saturday or Sunday. You should also have already completed 50-100 miles (your selected HHH ride distance).
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 8-12 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.
