I am doing Haute Route Alps in late August and have enough time to do 2 x speciality plans.
I was fortunate enough to get @chad 's input on my idea of doing:
Climbing Road Race
HOWEVER: listening to @Jonathan talk on AACC ep. 013 he said doing a 40k TT plan for longer climbs would be a good idea. (i’ve heard the guys mention this several times actually)
My idea is to simply ride as best i can NOT to race as i am a relative newbie. So i was thinking developing my sustained power at close to threshold using 40k TT might be a good idea?
Either way my last phase will be the Century Plan but i now feel the 40k tt plan might be a better primer than climbing road race.
Would love any input as i have never done either type of plan or event.
basic info: FTP 270 … 4.5 w/kg … newbie … addicted to my riding indoors.
thank you in advance!
