Thanks for the great replies.
OK the similarities between the TT and the Century plan make more sense now Bryce.
I am looking quite far ahead as I am eager to ensure I don’t go off track too much with the training.
I have basically done the SSB mid volume 1 but I have extended it a few weeks as I have been doing quite a bit of external riding in amongst it. However I don’t want to miss any of the specific workouts on SSB mid volume 1, so I will ensure I do them all.
Probably in a week’s time I will start SSB mid vol 2.
This will last 6 weeks and take me up to mid to late March approx.
Then build phase (probably Sustained Power Build). This takes another 8 weeks.
So that takes me to end of May.
Then I plan to do the 40K TT speciality phase. That takes another 8 weeks.
So already that is up to end of July pretty much. Phew!!! That’s lots of work
My main focus is being more competitive in 10 mile and 25 TT events. These are mainly on flatter and slightly rolling courses. Every week starting in May onwards I could do 10 mile and 25 mile TT’s as there are so many to choose from.
I don’t have an A race as such, but want to steadily progress and perhaps peak in July and August and hopefully nail some good times. I currently come in the top 20 or so out of fields of 50 to 100. I am hoping to bag a few top 10’s this year.
My way of thinking is that I want to do my club 10 most weeks starting in May and perhaps 2 other ‘Open’ 10’s or 25’s each month from May onwards.
Basically I will be substituting a TR workout for a TT race etc that week.
I am hoping I can still make progress this way as I don’t want to stop racing, just so that I am better in July & August. I enjoy racing too much.
My activity target is to race about fifteen 10 mile TT’s and about ten 25 mile TT’s during the spring and summer.
Accordingly I wanted to ensure I could pick a plan I can stick too, or at least modify a little so that my objectives are not compromised. I know that the TR training I have done already is benefiting.
Any suggestions here, or do you think I am on the right track.?
