This plan focuses on all around fitness. This plan works really well for the Gran Fondo Florida, but again, can be used for all of the Gran Fondos in the series.
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 plan is comprehensive and is built on 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.
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. This plan is appropriate for those training for the 60 or 100 mile distance.
