So I did my first crit last week and have the bug now. There is a big crit race coming up in 4 weeks, which is the week before my A Event which happens to be a 40KM TT. I really wanted to have a good crack at it.
I am currently working on closing out the 40KM TT Speciality Phase.
I am looking for some coaching guidance here as I wanted to sharpen my legs up a bit for the Crit race. Do you think:
a. Stick to the TT plan and don’t change anything
b. Sprinkle in some speciality phase rides from the crit plan e.g. some high intensity VO2 max intervals and over/under
c. Change the plan up to the crit plan
d. take up CX racing instead
I have been training for several years now with structured training through TR and am fairly fit at 42 at around 3.7 watts per kg.
