I am hopeful of securing a place on a charity cycle (www.thetour21.co.uk) in 2024 to support Cure Leukaemia.
I have used TR for years for short training plans over winter here in Scotland but how do I set a plan for 21 stages ….is it a case of putting in all 21 as cat A events?
What an opportunity! Enjoy it.
How much are you expecting to train on the road versus on the trainer?
I can’t think what the plan will do except increase volume massively, with long back to back days, to get your body used to 21 days of consistent battering!
Have you tried something like Highland+3 every day for a week yet?
Aim to do as much outdoors as possible but after October in North Scotland midweek is not an option so will be on the trainer.
I’ve assumed that the Calendar feature allowing us to enter a multi-day event as a stage race is largely just for “administrative completeness”, and doesn’t actually affect the training plan that gets generated other than the timing of the post-event recovery week that’s scheduled.
Happy to be corrected on that, but assuming I’m right you can save yourself a bit of hassle and just enter the first day as the target A event and then maybe add a muti-day 3 week Annotation to block out the rest. That’s what I’ve done for long trips.
